FTX 433 - THE MOURNE MEN IN GREEN - Folk Songs from Co Down

A remarkable collection of songs about local events including the shipwreck of the local fishing fleet out of Newcastle, a waxworks show and a political meeting. Perhaps the star of the selection, about a local illicit poteen still called "The Blackbird", which, after being raided and broken up, flies to a new nest, is rebuilt and continues making its "clocking" sound. The rest are love songs and further political ballads. Recorded at Rostrevor were Peter Sloan, Mick Alinden and Joe Brannigan, known locally as "the Float". At Hilltown: Owen McAteer, Robert Taylor and Frank Murphy and at Kilkeel: Paddy Sloan and Paddy Grant.
