  2. Beautiful song for a beautiful country. What's with all the politics shite in the comments? Leave it out. Just appreciate the song. Grá mór. 
  3. Tears of sorrow! Tears of Joy! Peace to the world!
  4. Beautiful man who died way before his time and a beautiful song that rises above the crass comments made here. I'm an Englishman born in Ireland, my mother is Scottish, so I'm a proper mongrel. I'll fight all corners(or 3 out of4), so I reckon I'll comment on the song .I was over in Mayo a few years ago with friends visiting family. we stayed at a pub at Belderig Beig (apologies for the spelling) One night a coach pulled up outside, it was full of youngsters going to the local club (30 miles away!) Anyway, they had called in to see us, as they had heard about us, The Singing English! Obviously we sat, had a few drinks and had a few songs. The highlight for me, of that evening and that weekend, was of a lovely young lady in a lovely part of a lovely country singing Song For Ireland. Hers was the best version I've ever heard, Luke's was the second.
  5. Wishing all a good and safe Saint Patrick's Day! As ever be well.
  6. Rip Luke. 31 years today
  7. This is a beautiful song sung by a great singer. It's a shame that some of the comments on this page are totally uncalled for. By the way, it was written by an Englishman called Phil Colclough , who died on 12th October 2004.
  8. Question to the Irish: I am from Canada, but I really want to become Irish. What are the attitudes and atmosphere towards Canadian folk?
  9. Ireland is the most beautiful country in the world!

  12. The Dubliners - Song for Ireland Walking all the day near tall towers where falcons build their nests Silver wings they fly, They know the call for freedom in their breasts, Saw Black Head against the sky Where twisted rocks they run down to the sea Living on your western shore, Saw summer sun sets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic Sea, And i sang a song for Ireland Drinking all the day, In old pubs where fiddlers love to play, Saw one touch the bow, He played a reel that seamed so grand and gay, I stood on dingle beach and cast, In wild foam for Atlantic bass, Living on your western shore, Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic Sea, And sang a song for Ireland Talking all the day, With true friends who try to make you stay, Telling jokes and news, Singing songs to while the time away, Watched the galway salmon run, Like silver dancing, darting in the sun, living on your western shore, Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic Sea, And i sang a song for Ireland Dreaming in the night, I saw a land where no-one had to fight, Waking in your dawn, I saw you crying in the morning light, sleeping where the falcons fly, They twist and turn all in your air-blue sky, Living on your western shore, Saw summer sunsets, I asked for more, I stood by your Atlantic sea, And I sang a song for Ireland
  13. Free Tibet or Northern Ireland? It's a good question

  20. LYRICS Walking all the day, near tall towers where falcons build their nests Silver winged they fly, they know the call of freedom in their breasts Saw Black Head against the sky where twisted rocks they run down to the sea Living on your western shore, saw summer sunsets, asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland Drinking all the day in old pubs where fiddlers love to play Someone touched the bow, he played a reel it seemed so fine and gay Stood on Dingle beach and cast in wild foam we found Atlantic bass Living on your western shore, saw summer sunsets asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland Talking all the day with true friends who try to make you stay Telling jokes and news, singing songs to pass the night away Watched the Galway salmon run like silver dancing darting in the sun Living on your western shore saw summer sunsets, asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland Dreaming in the night I saw a land where no man had to fight Waking in your dawn I saw you crying in the morning light Lying where the falcons fly, they twist and turn all in you e'er blue sky Living on your western shore, saw summer sunsets asked for more I stood by your Atlantic sea and sang a song for Ireland
