Album Notes
Written and performed live over a time span of almost 50 years reflecting the conscience of the writer. Shared through busking and in more intimate situations with marginalized people.

1) I'd Like to Thank You ………… No room on this sleeve to thank all the people who have helped me reach this point on my journey…….. this song is for you

2) Busking… Written from experience, busking with members of my family during the 70's - 90's.

3) Con's Song……… Con would say 'I suppose they're no harm" when offering a cigarette. He died of cancer and on the night he died, this song came to me. I play it to a cigarette

4) Love Your Lady………… Intended to help some of the young men asking young men's questions.

5) Who Starts the War….. This song was written while working with and singing peace songs to Northern Children during the troubles of the 70's-90's.

6) Drug Abuse…….. This song and 'Not strangers to the needle' evolved while playing music on a weekly basis to an organization of ex drug addicts, and listening to their stories.

7) Practice What you Preach …….. A growing up in the 60's song

8) Blood Song. From a very early age it was my ambition to donate 100 whole units of blood, which in
my 65th year I eventually did. I also acted as a volunteer organizer with the Irish Blood Transfusion Service for many years and wrote this song during that time.

9) Judge Not………….At a very young age I was warned that some would judge me by the cleanliness of my fingernails and the shine on my shoes. This song is probably a reaction.

10) Danny's Song…….. Danny was a young fisherman friend who drowned in Dunmanus Bay in 1979. This song came to me on the night of his death

11) Friend………… A novitiate friend had asked me to sing at his ordination and I tried to write a song with words that the bearded man might have used.

12) Not strangers to the needle…….. This song and 'Drug Abuse' evolved while playing music on a weekly basis to an organization of ex drug addicts, and listening to their stories.

13) Come on Beaver……. directed at my former self and the affluence of Canada, on behalf of the opposite end of the economic scale in the Third World. Like Your Heart is Kind, this song was inspired by the generosity of the people of Ireland

14) Your Heart is Kind ,,,,,,,Like Come on Beaver but with a wider scope, this song was inspired by the generosity of the people of Ireland.

15)Yesterdays……… Emigration aftermath

16) Cyberspace Blues……. During my work on the campaigns to Save Dunmanus Bay and Save the Tara landscape, i spent too long on a computer, wrangling with bureaucracy and at the same time designing websites for the campaigns and also commercially.

17) Harp Dreams..... A small sample of a forthcoming album of instrumental music mainly on ancient wire harp and uilleann pipes.i
