So fare thee well…

My parents won’t want to miss this video: it shows a very hippieish-looking Tommy Makem — with sideburns! — singing The Leaving of Liverpool on a rather psychedelic stage in 1973:

    Mee too, kcatnd. That’s why I so like Bertie Ahern. / I have NO idea what This means. :}

    “May Tommy Makem rest in peace.”

    Tommy shall, kcatnd. Indeed, I believe he now Is. / However: in a Cosmic sense ~ and despite the great Progress that has so commendably been achieved in the North ~ I also believe that the words of Padraig Pearse still apply: namely, that “Ireland, unfree, shall Never be at peace.”
