Don't know the Pogues' version (somehow they hardly twitched my radar) but Kris Drever does a stunning version.

Phil Gaston is an Irish songwriter. He was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, moved to London in the 1970s and later moved back to Ireland. ...

I believe he was one of the Pogues, and wrote songs for them.
I only heard "Navigator" when Kris D did it, great version: have since heard the Pogues too!
