Luck o the Irish to Ye!


What an incredibly haunting song!

So, today when I heard the song on the radio, it absolutely struck me - I might be in Ireland - where this song takes place - very soon.


And, if I am in Ireland, I'll be luckier than the writer of the words, Frederic Edward Weatherly, who according to legend, never set foot in Ireland.


Here's to Mr. Weatherly, who set his words to an absolutely haunting melody; Londonderry Air. I'll be thinking of you when I set foot in Ireland, and I'll be singing the words to your beautiful song.

I love this song so much. Are you really going to Ireland? If so, I am so excited for you. To prepare you must watch this movie (which we just finished in honor of St. Paddy's day) Waking Ned Divine. It is great!
