Thread Name: Help with two Irish songs, please
Subject: Help with two Irish songs, please
I am looking for background information and especially accreditation on two songs. One is, I know, a traditional song, however, if anyone knows it's background, I would appreciate the information. That is "I'm Leaving Tipperary" I have also seen it referred to as "Goodbye Mack, Goodbye Pat" and the lyrics appear here in the forum under the title "Goodbye Mick" The other song is one that I know was done by the Makem Brothers and that I assume is relatively newer. It is called "The Return of the Clipper Ships" [Day of the Clipper] Again, any information that anyone has to share would be much appreciated. Thanks.
