    Enjoying George and Pop by Glasnevin just now. Also, Glasnevin’s version of Boys of the Old Brigade is one of the best recorded versions of the song I’ve heard.

    Sinn Fein used to sell a T Shirt that said “a lorry load of volunteers” on it.

    loved that T Shirt!

    I remember a few decades ago going in car with parents from Glasgow to visit sister in London and listened to Rebel songs all the way down. Brilliant.
    My old man started singing some of the songs in Irish Gaelic.
    Found out from my gran (* rest her * soul) that one of my great great uncles was fighting in the Easter Rising and one of my cousins (never met them) was killed by the brits in the 70s.

    Today is the anniversary of Grace Gifford Plunkett's death. Not that we need an excuse to listen to this again.
