A song for St Patrick's Day

Many years ago, I was playing at a folk club down South and the person on immediately before me had everyone singing along with this song. When I was introduced, I said, "It's funny hearing that song because my father was from the Orange and my mother was from the Green", which is true.

The roomful of blank faces told me they hadn't a clue what the song they'd just been heartily singing was all about.

  2. The generation gap at work there, CL: I'd never heard of Trev & Simon until I played the clip.

  3. I'd never heard this song before and like you can relate to the lyrics, although in my case it's my Dad who's from an Irish Catholic background and my Mum from a Protestant one.
