Some great songs coming together on this thread ! Well done, PoorOldPo. I particularly like The Wolfe Tones; Some Say The Devil and Follow Me Up To Carlow.

Didn´t realize there were so many Irish Battalions fighting in the New World. Here´s a song about the strange, honourable and sad San Patricios Battalion. If you don´t mind listening to one thing while reading another, you can learn about an often overlooked episode in the American war against Mexico:-

OK, I´ve posted this before in one of VEGANGELICA´s threads, but it´s such a faultless performance of such a good song that I think it´s worth repeating :-

Did you ever hear of having more than you wanted? So that you couldn’t want anything else and then started looking for something else to want? It seems like we’re always searching for something to satisfy us, and never finding it. - Susan Eloise Hinton, 1967
