David Emergence of A New Irish Rebel Song... (1) Emergence of A New Irish Rebel Song... 10 Mar 98


As some of you may be aware of, in recent past there was the escape of IRA volunteer, Liam Averill, from prison, who, during a christmas party for the POWs dressed as a woman, and managed to get smuggled out on the bus. Humor being the most potent of the ingrediants... This, to me, has all the makings of a good Rebel tune, and I was wondering if anyone knew if one had yet been written. If I had to guess, I would say the first ones to do it would be the Wolfe Tones, who wrote "The Helicopter Song" after the famous lifting of 3 provos from a prison yard by a helicopter. Anyone know of a song about this incident yet?
