From the recording Here & There
The late Tommy Makem (Tinwhistle Music) composed this song in 1967. With his permission, we performed it at the 2006 Adams County Irish Festival, just before he took the stage. Ireland is personified as an old woman, who sings of the struggles of her four fields (Ireland's provinces), of which Ulster is still in British hands. Used by permission, arr. © Cormorant's Fancy.
