GUEST,jim bainbridge Songs by Matt McGinn (41) RE: Songs by Matt McGinn 21 Jan 20


I always enjoyed Matt's visits to our club in Marsden, South Shields in the 60s.
in later years, I was interested to find that the words of 'Coorie Doon' had been used in the glossy commemorative book about the 25th anniversary, in 2018, of the closure of the Arigna Mines in the Leitrim/Roscommon area of Ireland.

In the years before closure of the coalfield, Scottish experts had been advising the mine owners (Ireland's mines were always privately owned) about keeping it all afloat- maybe that's how the song finished up as an anthem for the Irish miners?
