The Fields of Athenry: A song about the prison ships.

Paddy Reilly’s Traditional version

The Dropkick Murphys’ version

Here’s two links to the song “The Fields of Athenry”. The first is the traditional version performed by Paddy Reilly and the second (my fave!) is by the Dropkick Murphys. The song is about an Irishman who stole food to feed his family and is awaiting to be taken away on the Hulk ships Ms. Vance lectured on last Thursday. Both videos have the lyrics and I hope you enjoy them.
