    I had intended to put something up but I'll just go with Lyrics as I cant find a link, a song he wrote entitled Philomena..
    Lyrics
    I've been a wild wild rover
    Sailed all over the sea
    But this thing that makes me wonder
    Has made a fool of me
    For it took me from my childhood
    Underneath the stars and skies
    And I still hear the wind
    Whistling through the wild wood, whispering goodbye
    It's home boys home
    She's home boys home
    No matter
    Where I roam
    If you see my mother
    Please give her all of my love
    For she has a heart of gold there
    As good as God above
    If you see my mother
    Tell her I'm keeping fine
    Tell her that I love her
    And I'll try and write sometime

    Despite the rain , I got in the mood quite well . The Manic Street Preachers were good too.

    Whom are you referring to as the oldest swinger in town ? Me or Jon Bon? He is a couple of years older than me .... Bruce Springsteen is 10 years older than Jon Bon, and a dynamo. .
    Nothing about @muckymanor being at the same concert on Saturday night...

    On the Declan Nerney , I could have seen him in Templemore last night . Only 10 mile away .Maybe Tippcon went . Not likely .

    About 2/3 of the way through the concert we fought our way out from where we were standing about 7 rows from the stage . We stayed back half way after that and the sound was much.better there , as opposed to "noise" at the front. I actually had ear plugs.

    Some version of Live Forever at the end, raw talent. Jesus Gay Byrne was in a class of his own as an interviewer. This was the same night their father turned up in the hotel after the concert.

    Hard to follow up on that but this was released 50 years ago today.


    Less than two weeks before the Apollo mission.

    This seems fitting given the time of year and Brendan's funeral today..
