Dia duit a Christy, I was reading through the comments and came across the post from Nancy 64 dated January 23rd in respect of a project she is working on about the Spanish Civil War. At the Lammas Fair in Ballycastle a few years ago my husband came across a framed poster that was created to mark the 70th anniversary of the International Brigade. The dedication as Gaeilge: IN ÓMÓS Do NA BRIOGÁIDI IDIRNÁISIÚNTA (In Homage to the International Brigade) 1938 -2008 Barcelona. At bottom of the poster also as Gaeilge: Is stair sibh, is laochraí sibh (You are history, you are heroes). If Nancy reads this I would be glad to send her a copy of this wonderful poster. As always Ride on Christy. Best wishes Mary Shannon
Christy, my 57th time seeing you ‘live’ in Glòr last nite. I’ve seen u at the Trip to Tipp, Auburn Lodge, McGann’s in Boston, Royal Albert Hall, Dominion in Hammersmith, Cois na hAbhna, West County, Irish Embassy Cale Cod, Finsbury Park, Wexford Parish Hall (with Joe Monahan as support) and loads of other spots. When gigging, I used to pride myself tgat I knew every one of your songs. You have been an integral part of my life from an impressionable teenager to attending your Spanish Pont gig with my teenage kids.
What a real treasure last night was. You even sang my request – After the Deluge – you might think of adding that to the band set list – a different take on the Moving Hearts instrumental at the end! Could be powerful.
God, I was in heaven last nite & could have listened to you for another 2 hours.
Tommy McGann, Doolin & Boston, my best friend, kept a postcard u sent him from Sydney on his bedside locker in Cape Cod, alongside a pic of his parents and a pic of his daughter Sarah.
May the Lord preserve you to enable you to brighten up the lives of so many, inspire many as you have inspired me, for many years to come.
You are a medium of expression for the soul and conscience of modern Ireland, in your own Chrisy way. Thank you
Roll on gig number 58!
Let the music keep your spirits high
Thanks for replying Christy. That’s no problem. We’ll have to stick to your CD so. It sounds safer ;). Lots of love.
