Loved this video and saw it come up again on my YouTube feed. Posted it before on Twitter but wanted to put it here on my blog. Really nice shots of some parts of Achill even if other parts of the island were missed.
Interesting cover of the traditional song “Whiskey in the jar” that just came on the radio by Think Twice. Never considered that song could be worked as a lounge version.
Frank Kelly has been a cultural presence almost all of my life. He was a character on Hall’s Pictorial Weekly in the 1970’s slurping tea from a saucer with Eamon Morrissey. If I was too young to understand the political commentary behind the sketches, it was memorable to an impressionable young boy with only one television channel to watch.
Later on, there was Father Ted of course.
But one of my favourite performances of Frank Kelly is in the short film where he has a small cameo part Yu Ming Is Ainm Dom
One of my favourite songs of the 1980’s. Much better than the more popular Black song “Wonderful Life” So sad to hear that he had died yesterday. The cull of artists in 2016 continues.
Black – Sweetest Smile
Just heard that David Bowie has died. Two of my favourites.
