It's named "The Rare Ould Times" by Pete St. John, and you will find it in the Rs in the Digitrad.

Great song.

Am I right in thinking it should be Peggy Dignan in Verse 3? And was she a raging child of Mary?

I'm just learning it too.

Noreen,

Yes, I think it's "Dignan", and she was a "rogue and a child of Mary" in my copy...

Hi All, I sing rougue and a child of Mary, and yes Peggy Dignan, a few other minor variances here and there. We must have been typing at the same time Sarah. Noreen when am I going to hear you singing again?

"Spring up along the quay" I think it should be, in the last verse.

And sometimes she's Peggy Diamond, and I prefer that. It's as Dublin a name as Dignam, and it adds an extra sparkle to the line.

McGrath,

Again, that's what my source says -- I imaging "ouay" is a typo, and the capital allowed it to slip through the proofreading.

Diamond, eh? I'll try that...

What about the 'I remember Dublin' in "Dublin '62" -- lovely tune by Dermot O'Brien? I searched for the lyrics but couldn't locate them. Anyone?

I always thought the singer was refering to himself being the rogue. The opposite of being a child of Mary. I heard it as Peggy Ditenan. Den

Thanks, Den- that makes far more sense. It's been puzzling me, wondering what he meant.

Rogue refers to the girl being a scalawag, and a Child of Mary means she was a member of a church group - the Children of Mary. And Pete St. John told me the name was Deignan. All the best. Seamus
