Hi all,

I'm looking for the text to a song entitled The Rose of Inchicore, or it could be The Pride of Inchicore. I've had a dig about and other threads and not undearthed anything anybody got any idea of the text and/or melody?

Thanks

Mike

Can't say I remember hearing it. There's a reference to it HERE ascribing it to one Mick Fitzgerald. The same reference turns up elsewhere on a simple Google.

Regards

Some info on the author here. Might be a starting point. He's written some good ones, like "All our Trades are Gone" (covered by June Tabor) and "Rathdrum Fair".

Thanks for the link to his website, he's a great story teller.
I had to share one of his stories about life in an a href="http://www.mickafitzgerald.com/short_stories.htm">Irish Session
I had a great laugh, and many of the musicians who come here will really enjoy it.

One lovely line harvested from the sound samples:

"For me heart is cultivated by the Pride of Inchicore"

Mick Fitzgerald and the Bacha Trio recorded "The Pride of Inichicore" on their "Streetwise" album. on A sound excerpt by Mick Fitzgerald and the Bacha Trio is here

And another snippet is here: http://new.allcelticmusic.com/music/f449652a-c422-11e0-b0f1-12313d02ceaa/Streetwise.html

Mr. Fitzgerald's website is here http://www.mickafitzgerald.com/site/
(I did not find the lyrics there.)

One reviewer commented that "the Pride of Inchicore makes you wonder why anyone would need to stray from the banks of the Camac in search of female pulchritude" http://www.fatea-records.co.uk/magazine/MickFitzgerald.html

Mind you, if I remember correctly, most of the Camac is underground - and the rest none too salubrious!

Hi Martin, the Camac flows past O'Farachain's back yard and in the summer when I was visiting his house to check on progress of the repair work being undertaken to remedy the damage caused by the flooding of his basement when the Camac overflowed it's banks, what did I see running along the bottom of the stream, but a pair of dippers busily turning stones and pebbles. It was a sight that I hadn't seen anywhere near Dublin for years. Most of the Camac runs in a culvert, but it is still a living breathing river as it runs through Inchicore. Ferg

We're still looking for the lyrics for "The Pride of Inchicore". I have written to composer Mick Fitzgerald asking for his kind help.

Thanks Fergie. Dippers still common along Dodder and, I presume, Owendower (sp?).

That said - can we find the words for Maeve?

Regards

p.s. You do anything about Spiddal? ;>)>

Hello Mick Fitzgerald, and a warm welcome to Mudcat Cafe! I did email you just over 2 years ago. With no reply, I reckoned you were busy writing more excellent songs, or my request fell into your spam file. Thank you for your post. I would love to learn your song, and will email you again over the weekend.

Regards,
Maeve

Subject: Lyr Add: THE PRIDE OF INCHICORE (Mick Fitzgerald)
From: Jim Dixon

Here's my transcription from Spotify. The only difficult part was the place names, but I think I got those nailed down, too. I inserted links for the curious.


THE PRIDE OF INCHICORE
As sung by Mick Fitzgerald and The Bacha Trio on "Streetwise" (2011)

Well, here I am in Dublin town as happy as can be.
The angels up above the clouds are watching over me.
I know they are, for now I feel more happy than before,
Since I met with lovely Martha, the pride of Inchicore.

Her cheeks they are a rosy red, her eyes a lovely brown,
And upon her lily-white shoulders, her jet-black hair flows down,
And every day I meet her, I love her more and more,
For me heart is captivated by the pride of Inchicore.

Clondalkin boasts of beauty, and I'd say it is well it can,
For there are lovely ladies from Ballyfermot to Oldbawn.
Oh, that may be, but I do swear there's none I fancy more
Than me own sweet lovely Martha, the pride of Inchicore.

And 'tis fare thee well, sweet Martha; my ship is bound to leave,
But until I'm in your arms again, my heart would surely grieve,
And when this war is over, 'tis then I'll turn once more
For to share me joys and me sorrows with the pride of Inchicore.
