Christy's liner notes:

I was at The Cobblestone one night 12 years ago and I heard Wally sing this. I loved it and forgot about it. Then 11 years later I was at a hooley and a fellow called Cathal Henry came up, "when are you going to sing Wally's Fishermen Raving". I believe in signs and this was a clear direction for me to have a cut at it. I always think of Plunky, a fisherman of Dun Laoghaire, when I sing this. How he would love the turn of tis lyric.
