GUEST,cobra Lyr Req: Ride On (Jimmy MacCarthy) (81* d) RE: Irish Song; 'Ride On' 27 Mar 07

"I love Jimmy MacCarthy's songs but he is a bit away with the fairies."

Well, fair play to you, Chris Murray!

I also happen to think he is a bit "away with the fairies" but, unlike your insinuation, I think that in a good way.

He is a very spiritual sort of an individual. Someone above made reference to his book "Ride On" and I would commend that to anyone. In it he write about his life and about his lyrics.

The fairies were lucky to have him for company and I, for one, feel lucky to have been exposed to his exquisite poetry.

Chris Murray, I am sure you did not mean any offence to the man. BUt I would encourage you to listen to (and read) the man's own words. It may just help you to offer a rather more informed opinion.
