misty15 Peace - November 11, 1918 I stood in the flag-decked cheering crowd Where all but I were gay, And gazing on their ecstasy, My heart shrank in dismay. For theirs was the joy of the 'little folk' The cruel glee of the weak, Who, banded together,...

Plutonium Given that the time between sentencing and execution date was 2 days, that's a pretty narrow window for either. However, given further reading it sounds like he could have been tortured and killed by British soldiers, with the motive of personal...

Fork Me I put loads of Irish stuff in the other threads, so I'm not planning o putting much in here today (also, I am genuinely busy today) however, this thread wouldn't be complete without Sinead O'Connor. Most people remember her for Nothing Compares 2 U,...

Joe 90 The word you’re looking for is ‘struggling’. And while we’re on the subject, nobody has ever been to bed with you. Not voluntarily, anyway.

Luna No thread about things Irish would be complete without the *Sally Gardens - or a scene in a pub! Not the best version - but typical of a Saturday night session. * Sally is the Salix (willow) tree.

Plutonium This is a traditional Irish language song, here sung by the Corrs. The tune was also used for a Scottish song called Come by the Hills. English translation. I'm a boy from the Erne and I could charm a nice young girl. I would not ask for her...

Plutonium This traditional Irish song has been sung by many artists, but the first time I heard it was by Van Morrison and the Chieftains. Van Morrison captures the basic angst of the song convincingly. The protagonist wishes that he was back in Carrickfergus...

Plutonium I didn't know that about Wolfe Tone either. On Wikipedia it says he was actually a Protestant, descended on his father's side from Huguenots. He was sentenced to hang for participation in the 1798 Irish rebellion. It appears that he cheated the...

Plutonium Track of the Day is a great idea, and I've found out about a lot of tracks and artists I didn't know about, either through googling on the day's theme or posted by others. If it's not up your street then go elsewhere, I'm not sure why some people...
