I’ve heard it said that if one really wants to know what happened in history, don’t go to the history books or newspapers. Go instead, to the music and poetry of the time. That’s where you’ll find the heart and soul of the people. This is what Raymond Daly and Derek Warfield have accomplished. Irish history as reflected through the music of the times. There is also a great emphasis on the history of the Celtic Football Club interwoven throughout this fine compilation. Thank you for this important work. You are to be commended for a job extremely well done!
