Subject: Origins: Jimmy MacCarthy - People of West Cork &K
From: TheContender91

Hi all I know this is a long shot but I am looking for a rare Jimmy MacCarthy song.

The song is called "The People of West Cork & Kerry" and was released as a one-off single about 10 years ago (2000 A.D.).

Record company was Ride On Records and it has The Sky Road as a B-Side.

I was wondering does anyone know where I might be able to source a copy of this record.

Also if anyone does know about the song I would be interested to hear when it was written and who it has been covered by.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Ta

It's on the album Gleanntán by the group Sliabh Notes [pronounced "sleeve"], sung beautifully by Tommy O'Sullivan. Review here:

Also googled this up, but it's only a copy/paste from a web page so I can't vouch for the info:

"The People of West Cork and Kerry was retitled From West Cork to Derry, with revised lyrics, on Seán Keane's album The Man That I Am (Grapevine GRACD 276, 2000)."

Thanks I have heard the song by Tommy O' Sullivan and Sean Keane but I know that Jimmy's version is out there somewhere and I will find a copy.

In the meantime I heard it during the SinE interview this year so they might be able to play it again. I will text them in and request it next time I'm listening.

Found on THIS SITE


          The People of West Cork and Kerry
It seems to me the people of West Cork and Kerry
They seem to understand the ways of my soul
They seem to recognise the healing ways of a young lad
Born into pain for the song and to roam

And now though still not old, I live alone in the garden
The pen it is slow but my heart is at rest
And when I see the world now, I see a world without turmoil
And all things I see now, I look for the best

Chorus

I know all the towns and I know all the places
I have kissed your lips and I have held your hand
Been all around the world but have not found such graces
For the people of West Cork and Kerry were grand

But when I was a young lad, the world was heavy on me
You gave me plain talk, and you made me feel blessed
You gave me the magic of all that went before me
When I needed to lay low, you gave me the nest

Chorus

And now though still not old, I live alone in the garden
The pen it is slow but my heart is at rest
You gave me the magic of all that went before me
When I needed to lay low, you gave me the nest

Chorus

Regards
