:) Hi Ghoti, I do believe I heard the same radio ad a few months or weeks ago, I too was surprised to hear it on regional, local radio. Keep an ear out for Leonard appearing regularly on Ronan Collins afternoon show on Radio 1 and also on Dave Fannings show on R2, fanning is a complete Beautiful Los...

Excellent collection Greg, Do you (or others) know the background to Kevin Barry (Berry), when Leonard performed it, where it was performed, who sings with him and possibly where did he learn of the master learnof this ballad. It is a song revered by many Irish people and a very unusual but very wel...
