Composed by Dan Rice from Mayobridge, just outside of Newry, this song was popularised by the Sands Family, who are from the locality and who recorded it on their 1972 album, Folk From The Mournes. Bróna has amended the final verse of the song to incorporate Larry Maginn’s pub as Stephen Toban’s no longer exists.

Elma McElligott (whistle), Bróna McVittie (vocal/harp), Annie Quinn (uilleann pipes, banjo), Pete Quinn (piano, keys), Karen Ryan (fiddle, whistle).
