Can’t wait to see the gig tomorrow night Christy Boy – Haven’t seen ya for years – ( been away in Iceland) – If you’ve ever sang The Ferryman I’d love a blast of that – Otherwise just continue being a geeza – All the best for tomorrow night!
a wee while ago I wrote an extra verse for Black is the Colour (sacrilege I know) for a very special friend. We will both be at the Usher Hall concert in Scotland in October…..
Realise pretty unlikely but thought I’d ask anyway……..any chance if you were singing Black is the Colour anyway you’d add the extra verse in?
Typed it below
In hope, Derek
Passed so many times, till our hearts did touch
Sunshine in my eyes, changed my life so much
Impossible dream, with hope it can come true
I’d wait a hundred years, my love for you
Hi All… what a weekend ahead,,,,,, tens of 1,000s will cycle around the Ring of Kerry for charity,,,, and exercise on Sat,,,, then the Tent gig and on Sun the influx of Rebels to Killarney for the much anticipated Munster Final,,, at least the Rebels can sing !!!,, this song is unlikely to be sung by the Lee,,,,but who knows ?? beir bua agus beannacht H,,,, https://youtu.be/tNnbECIxMKY
what a grand duet…must nearly be time for a replay…shine on Rose
Christy, I hope you are taking the waters and have employed the services of a punkahwallah to waft your pate. How’s this for a road trip. Dub to Kilkenny to Cork to Bray to Dub. Methinks Mr Devine would surely wish to employ me as a driver! We’re looking forward to the Magic Road and the tolls and the trolls. I hope you are all feeling glorious. See you by the river. Xx
Pate wafting is not a service with which I am familiar. Nor, for that matter,the services dispensed by a punkwallah…see you down the rebel girleen
Delighted to hear that you played another absolute stormer again at Glastonbury at the weekend, just like we knew you would. Has anyone else mentioned to you that the day after your Barrowland gig on 30 October that Celtic are playing Aberdeen at Celtic Park? I hope you will be able to treat yourself to some very well deserved, quality relaxation after a month on the road by getting along to the match. Weekends simply don’t get any better than enjoying you perform your magic at Barrowland on a Friday night and then seeing the Celts in Paradise the following day. Best wishes.
yes Kevin, we are indeed aware of that fixture…in fact we have been asked to bring our boots…. Declan was quite a lad at the soccer back in his Wexford Youth…they still talk of him gliding like a Gazelle down the wings of Wexford Town… there was talk of him going to Old Traffod but Horslips signed him. He quickly became their outstanding player before moving on to greater things.
………..The words “relaxation” and “Celtic Park” in the same sentence?
Big Tents and Festivals….that time of year all right…and nearly time for the Holiers for most folks. We had hoped to go to Paulo Nutini on sat and then the Groove on sun but the best laid plans…. Not to worry,The Great Northern on the 17th is on the list and Bundoran in July is like a different town, especially different to your last visit and the storms blowing outside. I was talking to Conors cousin (18) a few days ago and I asked him what music he was listening to and he says to me “a lot of Christy Moore “. I didn’t know he was into your stuff at all . So I loaned him the Barras DVD and we hope they can make the gig on the 17th if they are not working that evening.
Kingdom waiting for the Dubs ?? couple of steps before that yet Patsy.
Its all of 30 years since I played a Summer gig in Bundoran…bringing the Surfboard and Factor 50 this time…First gig there was 1972, I still remember Donal having a driving lesson in the old Planxty Transit Van…has the Blessed Virgin ever appeared in Buncrana (or did Pat McCabe make that up)
As the ref blows the whistle for the second half of the year, and the Dubs have gobbled up all before them, we can only hope that the Kingdom are ready and waiting in the long Grass. July of course is “Marquee” time, the Burgers & Chips dripping with Grease , and yourself and the great crew lashing it out in the Tent by the Lee.
“In July the man in cotton short he sits and thinks and being idle……..
Then back to the plush surroundings of Kilruddery….will it be Prawn or Hank sangwiches ????
you are taking a leaf out of “Brolly’s Book”….writing off both Cork and Westmeath in your opening remarks….
Got an aul slot at Groove, they’re throwing up a third ‘stage’, on at 7:45 on Sunday for 15 or 20 mins, grand jobby, gets me in through the door to hear ye play again! Lovely stuff…
well done Dylan…go for it
