Glen Reid Lyr Req: songs about the Irish Potato Famine (46) RE: Irish Potato Famine 16 Oct 03


I wrote a song many years ago called My Green Valleys.
The basis for the song, was the "coffin Ships" leaving famine stricken Ireland, headed for the new world.
Its been recorded over 30 times, mostly by Irish groups, such as, The Wolfetones and the Irish Rovers.
But the origional recording was by John Devlin of Brannigan's Boys, of which I was a part of, way back then.
Cheers, Glen
