Thread Name: The Mero (explanation wanted)
Subject: RE: The Mero (explanation wanted)
Was at a Pete St John concert last Saturday. He told about the characters that roamed the streets of Dublin in his childhood, the games thay played and life in general in a community close enough for everyone to know their neighbours and the general goings on in the district. The song the Mero (Mary Street cinema) is a nostalgic reflection of people and places long gone that he wanted to immortalise in song.
