Dear Friends this is the Tommy Sands programme we did earlier on this evening with special guest Professor Gabriel Scally, not only a renowned Doctor but a fine singer and songwriter also. Hope you enjoy it. I like the saturday night at six spot where we met together for many years on Country Ceili, Downtown Radio if anyone might remember.
Released within the past half hour...
I always feel honoured to hear my songs being recorded by people around the world but to hear this song from my own place County Down being performed so beautifully by young people from every GAA club in this County moves me very deeply indeed.
It was recorded in these eerie Isolation times when young people, unable to be together even for a short time, found a way to celebrate their own native place through music and somehow end up together, for all time. A privilege to be part of it.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir agus comhghairdeas.
Dear Friends one and all...a song I have just finished to add a little breath of brightness in the dark times we are in. Please be well and safe.
