Thread Name: Origins: Fields of Athenry (Pete St.John)
Subject: RE: Origins: Fields of Athenry

A very different (and in my opinion), much more "traditional-feeling" song - though written after Pete St. John's one! I've told the story elsewhere in this forum of how I sang a shortened version of Tim Dennehy's already shortened version of John Flanagan's original, in Kinvara a few years ago - and found out that John was sitting in front of me at the time!

Great song.
