Hi

BBC4 documentary about Danny Boy on right now...

The most beautiful, powerful, spine-tingling song ever written.

Let Erin Remember

Google "Seamus at the Irish memorial, Macedonia"

Check out this rendition, which was recorded last year at the Celtic Cross that was erected in 1926 to commemorate the 10 th(Irish)Division who fought on Gallipoli and in defence of Servia (sic)

"Let Erin Remember

Them with pride,

As for her freedom,

They too died."

I've been singing this song for over 20 years now and I never knew it had a third verse!

This was on BBC N Ireland the other week and I thought it was a great documentary. Like Simon, I didn't know it had a third verse.

Wasn't keen on its' comments regarding the Troubles, seemed too pro-Nationalist but aside from that a great documentary. Just think, the tune could have called the Limivady Air?
