From Dick Gaughan's discography:
Song For Ireland (Phil & June Colclough)
I first heard this sung by Sean Cannon and asked him about it. I was quite surprised to learn it had been written by Phil and June, who I had known for years. They'd been with the Critics Group, the group based around MacColl and Seeger at the Singers' Club in London. I don't think it could have been written by anyone Scots or Irish as it is not an inside view but there is something about it which appeals to us, with its echoes of Yeats. The guitar tuning used was DADGAD.
