Michael in Swansea The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem (68* d) RE: The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem 27 Sep 06

I've got 3, or's it 4 of their albums on vinyl. A aunty of mine introduced me to them when she brought some of their recordings when she came to visit. I was about 13 at the time and liked their "Up the long ladder, down the short rope" chant on the Carnegie Hall album 'cos I was into "Free Wales" at the time. Many years later whenI could afford it, (no longer shouting for freedom), I bought copies of my own.
Last year Baggyrinkle were singing at Cobh Festival in Ireland and we were called up to join Liam Clancy on stage. I was thrilled, to say the least.
At Cobh I bought a copy of his bio and asked him if he'd sign it. He asked my name, I said "Michael" I am now the proud possessor of Liam Clancy's book with the inscription "For Mike Gill Cobh 2005 Liam Clancy". My surname is Roberts, 'spose I could always change it.
