Subject: Sean Moan_I think?

Can anyone help? I was at a singing weekend in Country Tyrone a couple of years ago. I went with a friend and didnt know most of the singers. I heard a man sing a song I think he had written himself, about the Rev. Willie McCrea. It ws one of the funniest songs I've ever heard! It wasnt rude or anything like that but took the P**s out of the Rev. I think the singers name was Sean Moan (or Home) I'm not sure. Has anyone heard this song, is it on CD or tape! or can anyone tell me if I have the right singer. Sorry, not much to go on, but I hope someone can help.

That's the man alright! Not sure if he spells it Mone or Moan..? Has written a number of briliant songs.

Regards

Google says it's Mone; from Keady Co, Armagh and the title is Wille McRea. Looks like somebody named Fintan Vallely has "collected" it, but I couldn't figure out if it was a book, album, or what ever. Didn't find lyrics.

Fintan sings it alright! That's Fintan of "The Companion to Irish Traditional Music" and no mean songwriter and flute-player himself!

You can hear Sean Mone (I think) sing WILLIE McCREA at a pub session at You Tube.

On the other hand, if you'd rather hear William McCrea himself sing AMAZING GRACE and THE OLD RUGGED CROSS, YouTube has that, too.

It's easy to see which group is having more fun.

That's Sean alright - despite the Stygian darkness of the black North!
