One of the turning points in Irish history, known as The Flight of the Earls, took place at Rathmullan, on the shores of the Swilly on 14th September 1604. After defeat at the Battle of Kinsale, the last of the great Irish Warlords, Hugh O’Neill, Earl of Tyrone, along with other surviving Noblemen embarked form this spot and sailed into exile. This left Ireland open to domination and plantation by the English… Phil Coulter; ‘I’ve attempted to capture the mood of sadness that such a glorious chapter in our history had to end with this exile, and the momentum of the sea voyage, each breeze taking O’Neill further from his beloved Ireland. The scene is set by the unmistakable voice of my great pal Liam Neeson. What a star!’ Put to pictures of Irish countryside, Dublin city centre, Dublin’s statues and Lough Swilly…

It was such a crime that this song wasn’t released as single that I decided to make the video myself. Hope you guys like it!

Ireland’s entry for the Saoltvision Song Contest 2008 (This is a fictional contest done just for fun) The Chieftains feat. Sinéad O’Connor – The foggy dew As down the glen one Easter morn To a city fair rode I Their armed lines of marching men In squadrons passed me by No pipe did hum, no battle drum Did sound its loud tattoo But the Angelus’ bells o’er the Liffey’s wells Rang out in the foggy dew Right proudly high in Dublin town Hung they out a flag of war ‘Twas better to die ‘neath an Irish sky Than at Suvla or Sud el Bar And from the plains of Royal Meath Strong men came hurrying through While Brittania’s Huns with their long-range guns Sailed in through the foggy dew The bravest fell, and the requiem bell Rang mournfully and clear For those who died that Easter-tide In the springing of the year While the world did gaze with deep amaze At those fearless men but few Who bore the fight that freedom’s light Might shine through the foggy dew And back through the glen I rode again And my heart with grief was sore For I parted then with valiant men Whom I never shall see more But to and fro in my dreams I go And I kneel and pray for you For slavery fled, oh, glorious dead When you fell in the foggy dew

Grave Digger playing this song with Doro @ Wacken 2010, from the official DVD.

Rare vid clip of Marianne performing with the Irish folk band the Chieftains. What year is this? The Chieftains CD titled Long Black Veil in which this song features was released in 1995 and the studio version is about a min. longer with another verse.. Worth mentioning is that other headline artists collaborate on this great recording, including Mick Jagger (like you never heard him sing before!) doing Long Black Veil.

St. Andrews Pipe Band is really really good and were asked to play with the Chieftains in Charlotte, NC. They’re probably better than your band.
