NSC Paddy's Excuse Note; who when wh??? (27) RE: Paddy's Excuse Note; who when wh??? 24 Nov 99


Pat Cooksey wrote this song, based on the lecture given by Gerard Hoffnung in 1969.

Pat actually wrote it for Sean Cannon before he joined the Dubliners and the first performance was intended to be in Birmingham folk club. On the night in question the Americans decided to land on the moon and the only people present at the club were Pat Cooksey and Sean Cannon.

This story is directly from the lips of Pat Cooksey who is currently enjoying huge success in Germany.

He advises that this song is his pension scheme as he is regualarly enjoying royalty cheques.
