Effsee Origins: Kevin Barry (59* d) RE: Lyr Req: Kevin Barry 16 Mar 12


Big Al..."A friend of mine who is very cagey about publicity was doing a gig in Dublin way back, and he got this song requested.   He agreed to do it in the second set.

Before he went on again he was approached by some members of the Barry family including Kevin's mother. She asked him not to sing it as she regarded the whole song as a lie..."

"including Kevin's mother"...???

It must have been a very "way back" if KB died in 1920!!!
