Does anyone else know of this song by Peggy Sweeney? I'd love to get words for it.

No...but I just came across her yesterday on you tube and don't remember that as one of her few selections there.

Shane Magowen? wrote a great famine song called the Dunes and Ronnie Drew sings it on you tube. mg

Dan Keane wrote FAMINE YEARS in 1995. Peggy Sweeney recorded it on "An Emigrant's Letter" in 2006. I found these lyrics quoted here:

It's hard indeed, dear motherland, your anger to restrain,
But we've survived those many years and hope has bloomed again,
And to that hope, O holy land, be evermore resigned,
For the love of God is greater than the hate of all mankind.

Fantastic, thanks Jim. I didn't realise it was quite a new song, great air to it.
