What was the name of the tune that Christy used as an intro back in the day, sounded a bit like the into to Blondie song “Call Me” and i think was played on keyboard
Celestial Soda Pop – Ray Lynch
Thats going back a bit..well remembered..it was nice to hear it again…I ran out of the room thinking it was show time
Hi. I thought that article by Darragh was more about Dublin than Kerry,, we probably all read things differently,,,, (like being at our own individual gigs ?? ), As Shakespeare said ” by indirections find directions out ” maybe the sub text was about An Riocht and the Lily Whites,,,anyway its all good,, getting the tickets, planning the journey, the parking, where to eat, where to meet people, what weather to prepare for, not to mention the football itself and the buzz,,,,there is nothing like it,, safe travelling all… H
He was ,of course, referring to Dublin but we will use even the slightest opportunity to raise our hopes as we face the might of Kerry. Just as I remember our own great players ( not a medal between them) I also recall seeing Mick O’Connell soar, Tadghie Lyons badger,Mikey Sheehy feint, Bomber bury, Paudie harangue and harass,Gooch mesmerize,…the list is endless…. we have our own legends in Kildare but sadly, in my lifetime, not many achieved fame nor notoriety outside the County …Larry McCormack,Jimmy Cummins, Nuxer Buckley, Boiler White, Michael Geraghty, Paddy Gibbons, Ray Swan, Jimmy Dowling, Shay Cash, Johnny Doyle,Sos Dowling,Seamie Harrison, Davy Dalton,Harry Fay ( ex Wicklow) Paddy Anderson,Frank White,Liam Casey,The Rubber Keogh,Dinny Craddock, Skinner Behan,Johnny Gibson, Miko Doyle, Jimmy McDermot,Jack McKenna,Pat Dunny, Kevin Kelly,Larry Tomkins,Shay Fahy (Cork medalists but ex Lilys))
Hi All,,,, Yes condolences to Lizzy on the passing of her mother,,,,, California is a long way from Dublin,,,,,, The Folkfest in Killarney was really, really wonderful, well done to all involved,,, a stellar line up for sure, lets hope it will become an annual fixture,,,,Luka opened proceedings on Fri by invovling the listeners and encouraging them to gather up close to the stage,,,the M O C band played a grand set on Sat afternoon,,,, and he joined with Mick Hanly as special guests with Moving Hearts on the Fri,, there were 30 acts featuring maybe 180 musician,, many of whom stayed around and mingled,,,it was pure joy to be there,,,,are you singing a few songs for the Fermanagh boys before they meet the boys in blue Christy ?,,,,, its a busy weekend in Croker,,, looking forward to great sporting games,,,, Beir bua. H
I love this time of year as both Gaelic and Hurling Championships start to peak…to be in the last 8 adds greatly to the commotion….I see Marc O’Sé in the Irish Times today remarking how difficult it is for players to prepare mentally for games they are certain to win!!! I hope the Kildare lads read that!….Delighted to hear that Killarney went so well… Gleneagles has long since been a favourite venue for me…first gigged there nearly 40 years ago….used to sleep up on Mangerton after the early gigs….watched the Gleneagles TV Show last week….Fintan O’Toole gave it a right auld lash…..
I’ll be on the Hill come Sunday, hopefully buoyed up by a good result from the Minors on Sat evening. Its quiet and very wet up here in Fermanagh. Its a beautiful County. They have their work cut out but they too will be riled by
Ó Sé’s casual remarks.Is he lining himself up for Pat Spillane’s chair in the commentary box? Both of them have fairly earned their spurs.
To Lizzy in California sorry about the passing of your mother.that was a sad trip home.and a lonely trip back to California.
Well spoken CS (10)
I came home for my mother’s funeral, so it wasn’t exactly a holiday. I did get to climb Croagh Patrick on Sunday, despite the ban. We were half way down to Westport when we heard it had been cancelled but decided to go on and suss out what was happening. The weather was better when we arrived, the welcoming party was there as usual with the lemonade and the holy books wishing us well, and up we went. It was wet and windy and slippery, but it was grand. Now I’m on the way out again, but hopefully I’ll get to a gig next time I’m here. I got to a few matches when I was at home, and Tyrone are still hanging in there (barely). Wishing Kildare luck this weekend as well. All the best to you.
you certainly had a full schedule on your visit….safe journey back to the far west…we’re in Fermanagh for a few days…its easy to understand why they have so many lakes….
Feel like an idiot now not accepting your message. But I needed to knuckle down… Picked up a painting job with the pops & America is less than a month away. I’m back drinking, never trust meself on the gargle, but I’m back on it… Gonna print up this gig I reckon. Keep well Christy, yer a gent & a true musical hero. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6hgYUOPmMo
the gargle can be a devious, cunning, baffling and extremely powerful comrade….a great convincer, it can present itself as ones vital muse, as the one who understands, as the great comforter….for decades I lay intoxicated by its heady spell…..underneath all the denial and subterfuge I was slowly dying…. I hope that gargle proves to be different for you…….sometimes I happen upon old recordings that were made when I was drunk or stoned or both….hearing them hurts….I now realize the extent of my delusion……mind yourself and best wishes to you upon your journey
