Dunno about 'sub-Wolfe Tones' as they actually lived in Norn Iron as opposed to the
Tones wing of bar-stool Republicanism. I assume that thread is about the song
'Shipyard Slips', I doubt you'll find a song the Tones penned that can stand up to
that one.
It's not at all sectarian either, though probably not representative of their work in general.
Someone in a 'Slips' thread said that they were 'aligned' with the INLA
at one point - which is a very dark shade of green indeed. I also seem
to remember Christy Moore mentioning them in his notes on the song 'Our Lord
and Jesse James' in the Christy Moore songbook. The song itself doesn't mince about,
either. Fairly virulently anti-SDLP.
