Thread Name: DT Correction: Grace (Frank & Sean O'Meara)
Subject: RE: LYR ADD: Grace
Joseph Plunkett was a poet and a scholar. He had a passion for the mystic poets; St Francis, John Donne ... he was passionate, likewise for the cause of Ireland's freedom, and turn out to be an unlikley, and perhaps unsuitable military leader. His acts of bravery and love in the final days of life are commemorated in this most beautiful of songs ... which are taken in part, from his very own verse. Plunkett gave his life for a cause he believed in, and Frank & Sean O'Meara have given the world a gift in this song not so much about Plunkett's acts, as much as his love. The song tells a moving story.
