The late, great Luke Kelly helps us celebrate March, the month of the Irish.
A comment at youtube gives us the background on the song:
The “Auld Triangle” written by Brendan Behan during his incarceration for the murder of two Garda Síochána in Mountjoy Jail. The triangle was the metal triangle that was beaten by the screws (wardens) every morning to waken the inmates in Mountjoy Prison, it’s still there. The song is the reflection of a fictionalized IRA man on the last day of his life when he is going to be hanged. Behan wrote it about himself in memory of the Easter Rising in 1916 … The Royal Canal was built to carry freight by barge from Longford to Dublin.
The members of the European race must never again allow the (((tribe))) from another land to goad them into war with each other.
We will either stand together or die together. Let us become blood brothers, one and all: the Englishman, the Irishman, the Scot, the German, the Swede, the Italian, the Hungarian, the Russia.
Blood brothers! Now and forever.
