Subject: RE: Tune Req: The Woods Of Drumbo
I got the date of the booklet "The Story of the Drumboe Martyrs" wrong above: it was in fact 1958. It has recently been revised and reprinted to commemorate the 80th Anniversary of the executions. As well as giving the words of the "Drumboe Martyrs", also given are the words of another song on the subject "The Green Woods of Drumboe", written by Eamonn Monaghan about 30 years ago.

The revised booklet can be bought from the Sinn Fein Online Bookstore (though I ordered a copy over two weeks ago and it has still not arrived). Also available, according to a recent notice in the "Derry Journal" newspaper, by post from: The Cairde Centre, Bridge Street, Strabane, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
