My husband, my sister and her partner all went to the gig last night in Waterford. The two boys are big fans of yours and we were going along to be nice obliging partners and a little clueless! 🙈
You had our attention hook, line and sinker the minute you came on stage.
Your presence and the atmosphere you created was so amazing to be a part of. I have now become such a massive fan and have been listening to your music all day long. We will definitely be back to see you again.
P.S I have since learned you spent some time working and playing rugby in Cashel. I will definitely be claiming you ☺️
Sure did Ruth…I worked in Clonmel back in 1964… enjoyed a great season with Cashel RFC…happy times back in the Old World…we won a few trophies that year and large bottles were consumed in wild profusion….some good players on that team some of whom went on to play with Garryowen and Munster
Welcome aboard the song train…always a pleasure to sing for newcomers
We saw you recently in London after watching Tranmere Rovers win at Wembley. I’m pleased to say we have tickets to see you again on 4th October in Bundoran. My wife will be celebrating her 65th Birthday. We are travelling over from England stopping at Derry where I’m speaking at a social housing conference and then on to see you and have a short celebratory break. She doesn’t know yet that we are seeing you. It will be a birthday surprise.
we’ll be there, tuned up and ready to roll,
Thanks a million Christy for making Shane’s night last night. He is one very happy boy to have met you in person and he thoroughly enjoyed your concert last night. He is framing the pictures and autograph as we speak. Thanks again, myself and his Dad are really looking forward to your concert in the Marquis in Cork on the 6th July.
it was lovely to meet them…
Back again safe and sound. I really loved the Royal Theater Gig and the day spent in Waterford City. What a mighty gig, thank you….Standout for me was Rosalita, had never heard it before. Be well. Brian.
There I was on Saturday night regaling the audience about the lad who had come from New York to hear the songs….a voice came from the room..”he was here last night”
The Wife here Christy. Knowing how you support the “small fellas” in our society, my fella could really do with some of your lyrics to see him through the rest of this debacle. “You”ll never walk alone” has got him thus far.
its hard to figure out
Christy thank you so much for playing the request for us of First time ever i saw your face tonight in the theatre royal. You had the wife in tears. It was just perfect. We survived without going into labour haha. The night was brilliant. The voice, the guitar, the passion the wit and the banter is unparralel. Cant wait for the next one. Thank you for another brilliant night
Ian + Bernice
I think I might have pitched it a bit low..seemed to be singin way down in my boots, but we got there in the end…
Im hoping you seen my Irish American mob story I sent you a novel haha
It may be here Paul….You would not believe what comes in the post, Books and CDs, photos and cards, poems and paintings, medals and scapulars,mass cards and hate mail, I do try and get round to reading,listening,replying to them all but it takes time and I gotta prioritize my own stuff, gotta work on the ballads….
Christy I first saw you play in Belfield in 1975/6, and many times since then, but I don’t think I ever saw you as relaxed and happy in performance as tonight [Saturday 8 June 2019] in Waterford. The songs were powerful, touching, sad, funny, familiar and new, and all delivered perfectly. It’s great that you appreciate the venue, and that the Waterford audience work with you so well. It all made for a special night. Looking forward to your next visit. Keep well, and keep coming! Aidan.
Always a welcoming City…..over the years I’ve played many venues there I recall Kate Reillys,The Forum, The Showband Tavern, The Bridge, once (famously) up in the (now abandoned) Jury’s on the Hill, a pub in Slieve Rua, but none so memorable as this beautiful Theatre…..keep coming back Aiden
Belfield ’75….Theatre L ?
Christy, I’m an Aussie on holiday in Ireland and booked tickets to tonights show before I left Sydney. What a hoot you are brilliant.
Thanks so much for a great night.
Hope ye are having a “hoot”..
not quite sure what a “hoot ” might entail but I hope ye are having one, whatever it may be..
your post reminds me of trips to Sydney all those years ago….gigs in Sydney State, Town Hall, The Mercantile down The Rocks, a dodgy RAOB out in the Sticks,the trip to Vinegar Hill, the Dohertys of Maroubra, Brave Michael Dwyer’s grave in Waverly Cemetary, the thirsty ducks of Wooloomooloo
If Scotty could beam me up,I’d be back in the morning
Hi Christy, A very good morning to you from Salzburg, Would like to share our latest production ” Remember ” with your guest book.
Thank you also for all the beautiful music I received through Hilary.
Jördis Tielsch // Remember (written by John Gibbs)
Remember the 796 children, innocent victims disposed of by the Bon Secours Sisters during their reign at The Home from 1925 to 1961 in Tuam, Co. Galway. This song is …
Ah, our artists. It is a very large room, a very large debt, a very large love we all owe to them. Christy, here is a share that I just came upon. This, from one of my native born land’s artists I share with you. You being one of my Grandfather’s native land. And my Great Grandfather’s. Joni is such a talent. Hard to grasp how one can be so amazing in anyone’s brief, humble life.
thank you for posting this….
My daughter Natalie is bringing my son Shane to your concert tomorrow night in the Theatre Royal. He is a big fan of yours and she got him the tickets for his confirmation last week. It would be lovely if u could give him a mention as he has been through a lot with his rare condition Prune Belly Syndrome and it would make his night to get a mention r a photo. Thanking you, Sandra
Hope Shane has a good night in this beautiful venue….
I left the bike in Killarney! Hundreds of Honda 50’s showed up Sunday morning for the parade, a spectacular sight to see. I met a man by the name of Bagnell told me his brothers Honda 50 was featured in the original crazy video. Some cast of characters…..Looking forward to the gig. Brian.
I still have the Honda 50 in cold storage….I starts her up once a year and keeps him well oiled and greased, we’re planning a run down the Wild Atlantic Way as soon as we get a few free days….me leathers are cracked and badly in need of Dubbin, me helmet and goggles are out of date but the panniers are still to the good and we’re all set for good ride from Malin Head right down to The Mizen ….the tent and groundsheet are rolled up tight and we’re itchin for action….I’ll be watchin out for Harleys and want to issue a warning….your bikes may be bigger, ye may outnumber and outweigh but I’ll tell you…. this baby got some tiger in its tank……
see you tonight
Morning Christy from the blue and yellow bedecked independent Border town.
This probably has nothing to do with your guestbook but i thought someone might be interested in my home town’s common riding.
Commemorating 1514 when a group of youngsters ( most men had been slain at Flodden field 1513) beat off the pillaging English and took their flag of blue and gold for our town.
Now hundreds of horsemen and horsewomen commemorate this, checking each boundary on horseback for weeks ,in case of english incursion, culminating in this weekend’s huge festivities.
We have a great tradition of song and a check of youtube will deliver some delights like Bonnie Teviotdale , I like auld Hawick the best, Teribus and Up wi’ the banner…..all worth clicking on by insomniacs and others.
With our song and history Hawick is worthy of a look, and yes we also check the area boundaries for Trump invasion and sing Hey Ronnie reagan too….or some of us do.
Regards and ‘safe oot safe in’
Ps with our colours and up wi’ the banner we should twin with kilkee and kilrush , clare ,perhaps!
good share Rory,it has everything to do with this guestbook….
we too have our “Flodden Field”.. called the “Gibbet Rath”,it is located near the Army Camp on the “Curragh of Kildare”….
I met Donald for a private one-to-one below in Doonbeg….he wants me to write a song for his re-election campaign…our meeting took place in the Doonbeg Sauna Suite….hes some hoor to sweat, I thought I was bad but the Donald sweats like a Sumo wrestler in a chip shop….his hairstyle was lookin a bit flat so I sent him to my own hairstylist below in Kilrush who gave him a good rinse and blow..he came out lookin fluffed up like Dolly Parton ….we hit it off well, he wants me over in the White House next Paddy’s Day…I’ll check in with Leo and see how I’m fixed for a spin in The Lear …..the last time I was in Washington the Ronald was in the Hot Seat ….and they said it could’nt get any worse
Hi Christy, weve followed you up and down our beautiful country and over to the madness of the barrowlands and back. This saturday night myself and the wife will be there again to see you in the theatre royal except this time we are not far away from becoming 3 of us. With Bernice due to give birth next week weve a small request if you could please please play The first time ever i saw your face. Weve been playing it to the bump every night and getting massive amounts of kicks from baby. Youve already a fan and he/she is still in the womb. Hopefully this gig doesnt send her into labour yet haha. Cant wait to hear you again Christy.
Keep on going my man and thank you for all the great nights,
I wish you both the very best in this precious time…
its such a beautiful song…
Ewan MacColl wrote many memorable songs, I have had the priviledge to sing some of them …
its not always poss to sing this one, the voice,the head, the heart, the listeners, the room,all need to be in alignment,
if the night is right, I’ll give it a shot,
either way, I wish ye well in the coming weeks
Greetings from blooming Beara to you, dear Christy!
On the rugged Peninsula we’re enjoying beautiful walks (between showers) and last Saturday we had the pleasure to listen to lovely ballads in The High Tide Club at the Pier in CTB. Ger Wolfe sang like a lark and Martin Leahy accompanied him partly simultaneously on drums and bass guitar – amazing!
Not very long till we’ll head for north-west, so we’re already looking forward to seeing you soon.
what a fine pair of musicianers…Ger & Martin, heart of the rowl
Hope the batteries are recharging after the streets of London.
Summers here though it is hard to believe it ….. if it weren’t for the big GAA matches we might not realise it at all …. and yourself going on a long Solo run of gigs……. the prep must be different too……. anyways , enjoy it all and hope we will catch up along the way.
working on my solo run….toe to hand, toe to hand and over the bar, another point for the Flourbags
Hi Christy, hope all’s good. I’ve had a big weekend in Killarney riding the Ring of Kerry with lots of HOGS. Anyway a bit of schedule shifting
brings me to Waterford on Friday to see you and hear some songs. My friend that got me the ticket said it was restricted view I said it’s ok I have two small pictures of Christy on the insides of my eyelids…. I think I stole that line from you from way back lol …
sound..will you be on the Honda 50 ?
Thank you Hillary, appreciate your feed back….
