Christy – you wouldn’t be around Cork in the next 3 weeks or so. Christ with being an ex soccer player/coach/singer/lover and rogue -I’ve spent more time out of Cork than I have in it.
I know the brother in law (Rob Hef) is an aul butty of yours but tis a goal of mine to sing a tune or 2 with ya. Because of the lack of opportunities in the FAI at the moment – qualified coaches like myself have to go abroad to make a decent living – but when I’m home I’ve made the short walk to the Marquee to see ya boss.
Shur wasn’t Deccies boy, Jodie an auld training partner of mine -haha. The planets are aligning 😂😂.
Would fullfil a huge goal of mine if I could ever meet n throw n aul tune down with ya boss.
Love, health and safety to you and yours 💚

Hi All. It seems that Paul Kelly is an Australian music legend (sorry to say I was n’t familiar with his work til now !! ) In a recent interview as he kicks off a US tour ,,, when asked ” : What was the best concert that you ever attended as a spectator? he said : “I saw Christy Moore once in Melbourne about 30 years ago. It was a Friday night, and the hall was packed. He walked on stage by himself in a slightly rumpled suit. There were a lot of Irish expats in the crowd, and they’d had a few drinks in the pubs beforehand. They were rowdy, demanding, calling out for songs. He was uncomfortable and tetchy. He said, ‘Leave me alone for a bit. I have to find my way into this.’ And find his way he did. He wrangled that crowd like a bronco rider on a bull. When they got loud, he went soft and quietened them. He did all kinds of songs — love songs, folk songs, whimsical songs, historical songs, political songs, angry songs, funny songs. He sang with his guitar, sang a capella, sang as he beat the bodhran. Gradually, he relaxed and warmed into the show, and the crowd and he became one. He left that mob roaring.” Kelly says the Moore concert also influenced him most as a musician. “You can push and pull your audience,” he says. “You’re not their servant, and they are not yours.” I guess it was n’t today or yesterday you developed your Mojo Christy ??
Paul has some intersting things to say about writing and performing in that interview here is the link http://nodepression.com/article/paul-kelly-his-normal-record-and-taming-concert-crowd and for anyone interested is a taste of his work here is a recent short interview,,,https://youtu.be/0gP8gTy8PJY Beir bua agus beannacht.

Had the grub in Monks Lane.Met Gavin mentioned the song.On the way.John Spillane doing his usual gig on the 1st thursday of the month in De Barras.We all would love to see you and the band do a gig in Clon.
Best team won on the day!!! Moorefield 2-11 sarsfields 1-11 .. and that was only quater final!!!
Lord what an evening and it made me think sarsfields were going for the 3 in a row like the dubs then I realised that this sarsfields team ain’t any Dublin team..
Big match in the Morning and I know three quarters of the country are routing for mayo but I was thinking this Dublin team is the best football team the gaa have ever come acrossed. I won’t be surprised if they do the 5 in a row..
And as a kildare man I have great respect for what the dubs are showing of the past few years.. at the moment the only team to gave Dublin a game was kildare!!!
I met a fellow from Galway two weeks ago in “cons” and asked did I know the Galway shawl?? I didn’t know it but he was happy enough with the fields of athenry after the song he asked “do ya know any Christy Moore songs” I said what’s your favourite and he said paddy was a gentleman
I wasn’t expecting that but I knew the first two verses and gave it a sting. It rocked hill 16 will tomorrow.
Just watching Lynyrd skynyrd at the moment. There’s nothing like the rocknroll
Always a good day (for myself) when The Moores overcome The Sash…..I well remember those barren years in the early 50s when ye enjoyed Senior status while we still struggled to alleviate our Intermediate position….then Billy Bell began to build a new squad ….Jimmy Cummins, Fido, Doggy, Johnny Gibson, Jimmy McDermot, and other of our stalwarts were soon joined by the likes of Toss McCarthy, Paddy Moore, Harry Fay, Joe Moran and Ray Clinton…..before long we were challenging for County Senior Honours …then came the day when we achieved our crowning glory….we became KIldare County Chamions…I was 16…
One of the first songs I ever wrote began….
“twas a damp and dirty mornin when The Rags rode into Town”
PS…I’m partial to a blast of Metallica myself….always reminds me of Jimmy Dunny, Bobby Rogers, Tom Wilmot…
Previous posting regarding tenor banjo. Reminders of The Dubs in 68 and 69 in London, crashing backstage at the Albert Hall and trying to get them on at our folk club… well Barney said yes, of course he did. Remembering Liam Farrell another London based banjo great. Ralph McTell, The Johnstons,John Martyn, Johnny Silvo, Julie Felix and Noel Murphy (all of whom we did get on). Laughing… sunny, happy days in the smoke.
Liam Farrell had his 80th celebrated recently….Noel Murphy (& Shaggis), King of the Nyaaaaah, Johnny Silvo always well turned out and fond of a wee tincture,John Martyn from Moscow to Kilkenny,genius musician, troubled prodigy,
I was at the royal festival hall on wednesday night.It was a superb gig from start to finish.My cousin Pat o Donovan from Harlow came with me to the gig. He was blown away with what he saw.Looking forward to the new album.Another masterpiece on doubt.Thanks again for a suberb night by the Thames.Next stop Monks Lane for Sunday Lunch.Looking forward to the INEC in october.Let the music keep the spirits hagh.David Madden.
if you go to Monks Lane for the Sunday Dinner would you ask my nephew Gavin to send me that song he promised….
hope all is well in De Rebel….any gigs in De Barras, is John Spillane still doing his monthly stint…
see you in The Kingdom Hall come October
