For All Who Come After Me

posted in: Latest News | 0

This week-end I created a new song…
The inspiration came from a showcase competition I read about on www.tradconnect.com They were asking people to submit songs that deal with ‘modern day emigration’. Christy Moore (a very well respected Irish musician) has agreed to listen to the songs and help find a ‘winner’. So, I sat down and started writing a list of some of the reasons why people would want to leave Ireland today. Unfortunately it became quite a long list…

However, I do love Ireland and appreciate that there are so many good things about living here. I would therefore like to think that we can ’emigrate our brains’ instead of physically leaving. We can educate ourselves and think outside of what the government, the church or the corporate media are trying to brainwash and exploit us with. We can look for inspiration in other parts of the world and learn from migrants who are now living and working with us here. Together we can create an Ireland which we are all proud to call home. So my song ‘For all who come after me’ is a protest song. It is a song of hope, and a song of determination to achieve change.

Have a listen & feel free to share or let me know what you think:
