Thread Name: Help: Who wrote 'Grace'?
Subject: Who wrote 'Grace'?
Who wrote "Grace": the song about Joseph Plunkett, executed in Dublin for his part in the Easter Rising of 1916, and his marriage to Grace Gifford, two hours before the execution. Until recently I had more or less dismissed this song as a maudlin Republican ballad. However, having heard the version by the The Irish Tenors, I wonder if I have perhaps I have been too hasty. Anyway, who wrote it, when, and who was he or she?
