It's the Voice Squad, as far as I know, and Liam O'Maonlai (from Hothouse Flowers). The Voice Squad also sing this song on their first album, but in a different arrangement.

And what a great ending to my absolute favorite film of the planet known as Earth. The first time I saw the film, I was standing at the end screaming "Yes, Yes, Yes! The whole theater was rocking, with people in tears, laughing, hugging each other. It was the second best five dollars I ever spent in my life.

...That's funny, I ended up saying the same thing after the first best five dollars I ever spent...

"Waking Ned Devine" was what they called it here. (And it was shot in the Isle of Man. They said that was because it felt more like Ireland these days. But I think it was just a bit cheaper getting extras and so forth, because they haven't had so many films shot there.)

Incidentally Liam O'Maonlai's younger brother Colm is at present in the BBC soap Eastenders. His character,Tom,is busy dying with a brain tumour at present, so either Liam's got a new part lined up or Tom will be off to Lourdes maybe.

Just a few days ago, I was prompted to start a thread (and resurrect yet another thread) about this song by its appearance in *another* film set in Ireland, "Evelyn." (This one was actually filmed in Ireland, in and around Dublin.)

It's a great movie that didn't get much attention, at least not in the states, so I am taking every opportunity to give it a plug. For my review, see my post of 12 Jan 04 01:22 pm on this thread:

http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=37399#1091259

The complete song is not heard, but fragments are sung on at least two occasions within the film (rather than behind the credits as in "Waking Ned Devine"). Once, Pierce Brosnan and the actor playing his father sing a few lines a-cappella at home, and later they perform it in a pub setting, with Brosnan singing and the old man playing the fiddle.

The old fellow playing the Da seemed to be actually playing his instrument, and pretty well at that -- perhaps he's known in Ireland as a musician as well as an actor.

By the way, referring back to that other very excellent film about which this thread was started -- the title in the US was/is "Waking Ned Devine," just as in McGofH's neighborhood -- calling it "The Waking of..." was probably just a little mistake.

Can somebody please help me?
At the start of the song - the parting glass sung by Liam O Maonlai in the film, he says something in Irish. Does anybody know what that is?

Hi.
In respect of your wanting to know what the first bit in Irish is of "The Parting Glass", all I can tell you is it is the poem "Forever in your debt" by Kirk Jones.

Hope it helps

From Kirk Jones' post on the IMDb


With thanks to those who blew the wind,
And those who sailed the ship,
We sailed it tight against the tide,
And I shall be forever in your debt.

Is that the film where a man starts to sing, then *everyone joins in*? This would never happen in Ireland, unless the singer invited people to join him.

Does anybody know where I can get the song 'The Parting Glass' from the movie 'Waking Ned Devine'? I am from the UK, and it is not on iTunes (typical) and it is also is only sold as a CD on Amazon. If anybody could give me a hand with my problem it would be a great help.

(p.s. I first came across this tune at my friend's father's funeral, and as you can imagine, everybody was wailing, and it really touched me. I want to be able to download it on iPod or mp3.)

I'd never heard of the Kigh Kings but I really enjoyed that! Totally over the top but great fun and brilliantly performed.

If you (Guest, above) are happy with the Voice Squad version (which for me is the best of all) you can download it as an MP3 track on Amazon for 69p.

IMDb says the film’s original title was Waking Ned, and it was released under that title in the UK and Ireland; however, it was titled Waking Ned Devine in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and the USA. This can be confusing if you search for the soundtrack album; I found it listed on Spotify as Waking Ned, while the film is listed as Waking Ned Devine at IMDb.

Here’s how the soundtrack credit for THE PARTING GLASS appears at IMDb:
The Parting Glass
(1998)
Composed and arranged by Shaun Davey
Performed by Liam O'Maonlai
By courtesy of London Records
Liam Ó Maonlaí is indeed a member of the Hothouse Flowers, but they are not credited as such in the film. There are harmonizing voices in the soundtrack recording but they are not identified at IMDb.

The Waterboys are credited for a different song: FISHERMAN’S BLUES, not THE PARTING GLASS.

The tune used in the soundtrack is somewhat different from the familiar one; I assume that’s why Shaun Davey claims credit for it. The lyrics are below.

You can hear this at YouTube:


THE PARTING GLASS
As sung by Liam O'Maonlai on the soundtrack album “Waking Ned” (1998)

[The singing is preceded by a spoken line or two in Irish which I can’t transcribe.]*

All the money that e’er I had, I spent it in good company,
And all the harm I’ve ever done, alas, it was to none but me;
And all I’ve done for want of wit to memory now I can’t recall,
So fill to me the parting glass; goodnight and joy be to you all.

Fill to me the parting glass and drink a health whate’er befalls,
Then gently rise and softly call: goodnight and joy be to you all.

Of all the comrades that e’er I had, they’re sorry for my going away,
And all the sweethearts that e’er I had, they’d wish me one more day to stay.
Since it fell unto my lot that I should rise and you should not,
I gently rise and softly call: goodnight and joy be to you all.

Since it fell unto my lot that I should rise and you should not,
I gently rise and softly call: goodnight and joy be to you all.
So fill to me the parting glass and drink a health whate’er befalls,
Then gently rise and softly call: goodnight and joy be to you all.


* Assuming the Irish words are correctly identified above as “Forever in Your Debt” by Kirk Jones, I found the following at a blog (I can’t vouch for their accuracy):

Guím maith dhóibh siúd a shéid an ghaoth
agus iad uilig a stiúir an bád
thugamar linn é i gcoinne an trá
bead? buíoch thar lá mo bháis.
