Phil Coulter / Paddy Reilly / The Shannon Singers - "The Fields of Athenry"

Athenry is an Irish town located on the western part of Ireland near Galway. Athenry has been described as still retaining much of it's Medieval look and charm.

This is a new find for me. I've absolutely fallen in love with this song! So much so, in fact, that I've downloaded about six different recordings of this song! Here are two of my downloads. Enjoy!!! This music is just beautiful and the video accompanying the music is absolutely majestic...........

The Rambling Rogues - The Water is Wide / Song for Ireland / Caledonia

The Late Late Show tribute to The Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem

The Clancy Brothers - Ar Fol Lol La Lo / Lament For Brendan Behan / Nancy Whisky / Westering Ho / Mingulay Boat Song / Galway City / O'Donnell Abu / The Easter Rising 1916
