This is a beautiful song performed by the Clancy brothers and Tommy Makim in 1984.
The comedy monologue at the end is worth listening to.
My bride and I saw them at about that time in Brisbane, and we remember the show fondly, although they didn't perform this one at the concert we attended. To my way of thinking, Celtic music has a quality and depth not found in any other musical culture. Perhaps I'm biased.
You may recall the saying -
"The Irish as a nation
Are really all quite mad
Their wars are all so happy,
And their songs are all so sad"
Tis true, but it may have to do with the fact that for a long time they fought everybody else's wars.
