Fantastic gig in the Forum last night Christy. An absolute legend of Ireland. Vive la Quinta Brigada will always have a special resonance with Waterford and boy did I give it gutso last night. Declans song was amazing too and the duet out of this world. Jimmy is a very welcome addition to Band. Any chance of a meet and photo when youre in Waterford again for the 30th???
Delighted to see you read my earlier comment…Thanks Christy. Really looking forward to the gig in July.
Hi again Christy
I hope you’re well.
I’m looking forward to your show at the Southbank centre next month (we have tickets for the Friday gig).
I was listening to some of your records the other day and I just wanted to ask you if there’s a possibility that we can hear you sing Bridget’s pill? I love the song and the live recording that’s on the collection album is just fantastic!
Take care and we’ll see you soon
Hi Johanna..thanks for your enthusiastic request….. but regrets, that song fell from the repertoire about 45 years ago and spun off to the far end of our sweet Universe…we will do our best to make up for its absence when we camp by The Thames, come April…”

Hiya Christy .. hope all is good with you and that Waterford goes well tonight. I’m out here in Holy Land at present celebrating the ould belly button birthday…another year older but still none the wiser I’m afraid. Was ambling down by the waterfront here in Tel Aviv earlier today when I happened upon an Irish pub by the name of Molly Blooms, I was drawn to it when I heard the sound of CM and Viva La Quinta Brigade blasting out from the jukebox inside…Sure I had to investigate further..anyways there wasn’t a Biddy or a Mick in sight but Jayus the place was hopping …no recession out here by the looks of things. I had a cup of coffee and listened to a few more tunes before moving on, had a wee chuckle to myself and thought I’d share the story with you…Anyways, it’s been a great trip, Jerusalem, The West Bank, Palestine a truly memorable and once in a life time experience…catch up soon again I Hope Love, Respect & Shalom Martin Mac

At a railway station called gare du nord I missed me train thru garglin hard.Three days later in Napoli on a Turkish boat I went to see, slept in a hot hole down below, I was travellin tourist class, you know” …( Galway Joe Dolans “trip to Jerusalem’) from the album “The Iron behind The velvet ” ( 1978 )
