Thread Name: Lyr Add: Inchicore Wake (Pete St. John)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Old Ways of Dublin
I managed to pick up some of the lyrics of this song, from a chap called Dermot Whelan, who got it from a stone mason in the Liberties called Georgie Mullins. It's called the Inchicore Wake, and I was told it was written by Pete St. John, but I couldn't find any mention of it on his web site. I'd still like to know who, if anybody, recorded it. I'll post what I have as soon as I can.
