Subject: Ireland

I heard a bit of this song at the end of B Connelly's TV show and would like to find the name of it, it goes:
    And the troubles that you've been through
    but it's more about what happens now
    and what we're coming to
    Ireland, Ireland.

It was sung in an American accent which suggests the singer is from the Irish Country & Western tradition. Unfortunately I don't know too much about that area.

Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse:

"...the singer is from the Irish Country & Western tradition. "

Hells teeth I thought Scotland was the worst offender with Sidney Devine!!!

HELP.

I need to check this out, but I think this may be a song by Barry Moore (aka Luka Bloom), if there was a lot of harmonica on it that confirms it for me. If its the one I'm thinking of he goes into Danny Boy (the first version of I ever liked) straight afterwards.

The song is recorded on an album called 'In Groenigen' (sorry if my Dutch spelling isn't the best) which he made in the early 80s with, among others, a harmonica player called Eamon Murray, while he as still called Barry. I used to joke that the album was about toe-nails (think about it!) - which says a lot for my silly sense of humour.

I'll dust off my vinyl (struggling with spelling here again) over the week-end and get back to you on it.

Barry (Luka) wouldn't be classed as being part of the Irish C&W 'tradition' though.

Ahhh, but there's different syles of Irish C&W - was it "Country and Irish" or "Culchie and Western"? ;-)

If you're referring to the song played during the closing credits of Billy Connolly's TV show about Ireland the other night, I think I glimpsed in the credits that he himself had been involved in writing it.

Yes it's the one played during the credits and I think the singer is Cara Dillon as she is also refered to.

Its not the one I was thinking of so. But I think I'll still dig out the vinyl for a listen. Thanks for reminding me of it.

Why shouldn't the Irish do this sort of thing? They really did invent country & western music, didn't they?

Hrothgar, have you heard the full horror of what is 'Country & Irish' or 'Culchie & Western' ??? :->

A few year's back there was outrage in certain quarters when they tried to remove Daniel O'Donnell from the Country music charts into the 'easy listening' ones. I was also upset but I think for slightly different reasons. I though about writing a song about this but only ever got as far as the tite "If Daniel's easy listening, I like my listening hard".

It could be the one used in the rugby.

I don't think Ireland's Call (the one used in the Rugby) has any references to the troubles in it, but its hard to decypher the lyrics from the singing (?) of the Rugby team. The lyrics quoted in the original post defintely ring a bell, but I can't remember exactly where I might have heard them.

Phil Coulter wrote 'Ireland's Call' for the 'Irish' rugby team. He includes all 4 Provinces and it is not political. It's one the whole rugby team can sing. This is good as the Ulster players can join in as well.

There's some great Irish music that is more into "Country" than is "Celtic". Starting with the Carter Family.

Oddly enough, the lines quoted in the request (except for the "Ireland" part) come from ENGLAND by Ralph McTell.

Funny no one noticed this.

...and interestingly the first message of the thread Jim linked to says Ralph McTell's song "England" was the theme music to Billy Connolly's World Tour of England, Ireland and Wales. You'll notice that the first message of this thread said that the song was on a Billy Connolly show, and here (click) is a YouTube video of Cara Dillon singing "Ireland" from the closing credits of the Connolly tour video. Maybe Connolly changed the song to match his location in the tour.
