Brendan Duffin's Myspace page. He hopes to have his first gig in September, unmissable!
There is a new permanent display of paintings relating to Tara at the City North Hotel, Gormanstown, Co Meath. Go visit, have lunch, enjoy the gallery. There are some awesome pieces of work there.
So we all love Tara
But she'll never be the same
Because they destroyed her Valley
And they did it in our name
Where are now the Fianna graves?
They have destroyed them all
Bertie hang your head in shame
And all ye in Fianna Fail
Our Vigil tried to save them
And the Woodhenge and Rath Lugh
But our enemy were many
And we were but a few
Where were the OPW
When our Valley was destroyed
These "Guardians" of our monuments
They should have been annoyed
You may ask did they not do their job?
Or just "What did they do"?
Well! They employed NRA Security
And they attacked us too
Because they betrayed old Tara
They are all no good
Tara is the heart of Ireland
And is stained with Croppy's blood
Great men died for Ireland
So that we could all be free
Free to destroy Tara
And free to join the EEC
So we will give away our country
Without bloodshed cuts or scars
And stand beneath that blue rag
And be one of it's stars
A small fish in a big pond
And no money in our purse
But we deserve no better
Because we're damned by Tara's Curse
So go on then and join Europe
Go on and be a fool
And your kids will fight forever
To gain again Home Rule!
Wish I was there....the poem is beautiful...reminds me 'the terible beauty', unfortunately for us it is true......
And the destruction is to continnue with the bbuilding of the new Dublin Port...destroying the homes and graves of the ancients again.....jesus fucking wept..
