Ya know Christy when I see your comments on Shane and and others.. just for thought.. if ya want to see her pain and suffering look at those like Shane..not in a disrespectful way.. but the ole soul and pain of her.. her meaning Ireland of suffering its in Shane and others who carry and have gift to be able to tap into it of how she cries out.. only those who understand can begin to know.. the great writers like Christy Shane tap into what few fail to hear
there you have it
When midnight comes and travellers homeward tread
Seek now your blanket and your feather bed
Home comes the rover his journeys over
Yield up the night time to old John o dreams
A sad day fir Derry is right John…a sad day for us an’ all.
Martin McGuinness RIP (with respect to Luka…poetic license)
No matter where your traveling takes you
Sure the Bogside will never leave you
Some people look for God above
Down in the Bogside you found love
Sad day fir Derry tomorrow with funerals of the Derry City captain and Martin McGuinness. Much written these days but my head is filled with the lines” Only the very safe, can talk about wrong and right, Of those who are forced to choose, Some will choose to fight” Hopefully we are well on the road to peace. RIP to all our dead
Martin’s Legacy is a Peaceful one…that we all might embrace it

Hi Christy Looking forward to seeing you in The Town Hall Theatre here in Claremorris in a few weeks.
I’m Catherine, Broadcaster in CCR94.6FM in Town Hall. I present the Good Morning Show on Fridays 9 -11am http://www.ccr946.ie
I would like to offer you the opportunity for a telephone interview on Friday morning 31st March, any time between 9.45 – 10.45 A 10 min relaxed chat about your music.. especially your Knock Airport song.. Great anticipation in the community for your upcoming concert here. Look Forward to hearing from you Christy. In the meantime best of luck and continued success.
Thanks Catherine..lovely to hear from you and thank you for offering me the opportunity….not so sure about “especially the Knock Airport Song”..its 33 years since I first sang that…..the good listeners at CCR94.6FM might think, “jasus is that auld bollicks ever gonna sing about anything else”
last years album had at least one new song with a Mayo connection…
I dont have my schedule yet for Mar 31st but I do know I will be in Athlone that night (albeit on the Leinster side of the River) ..looking forward to Claremorris..really enjoyed the beautiful venue on my first visit…great memories of playing concerts in Claremorris for the late legendary Andy Creighton R.I.P. Anyone remember the Claremorris Ham Festival ?
I’ve written a humorous song that I think might suit you Christy! It takes the p..s out of health insurance.
these days he is concentrating more on taking the piss out of himself and hum…us songs
Any plans for a gig over this direction in the near future? Birmingham/Nottingham/Leicester/Coventry would be sure sell-outs 🙂
If all goes well , I hope to play one of those towns in Spring 2018 ……..looking back on the 1968 diary I played them all in one week…O the energy of youth !
