For those who may be intereted, Mick 'The Twangman' Dunne...an above average singer and excellent songwriter has uploaded a video of myself singing 'The Martyr James Byrne' at the 1913 Lockout Commemorative Walk held as part of the 2013 Frank Harte Festival in Dublin...the link is http://youtu.be/RcZx2yv04aE.

Will be singing it again as part of a commemoraion and wreath laying ceremony at Deansgrange cemetary Dublin on Sat. Nov. 2nd at 2pm.

Hope you all enjoy the song. - Pat

Also; in Liverpool on Sunday 20 October 2013 there will be an afternoon of talks and discussions (but no songs, I think) about the 1913 Dublin Lockout, and the role played by Jim Larkin who was himself from Liverpool. This is part of the Liverpool Irish Festival, and tickets at £5 for this event are very limited. Francy Devine who researched the walk around Dublin for the Frank Harte Weekend so well will be one of the speakers. Unfortunately I can't make it, but it looks very interesting.

As Matthew said, booking is advisable for this one. Ring 0151 702 5324 for the box office. I'll be there and, for anyone interested in Irish labour history, I'd say it's an absolute must.

Also, tonight at the Casa, Hope St., L1 9BQ, Radical Liverpool are hosting an evening of songs, stories and humour of the Liverpool of Jim, Delia and Peter Larkin. That starts at 8pm. Free admission.
