Listening on Spotify to Dervish, an Irish band from Sligo. Only now I discover them.

The find of the month. They remind me of the Bothy Band from the seventies. Lead singer Cathy Jordan is very much reminiscent of Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill of that awesome group.

Go Raibh Maith Agat, Spotify.

My Irishness has just been intensified after watching Rebellion, about the 1916 Easter Uprising, on Netflix. I don’t agree with terrorist tactics but I can see how they came about.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
