Defiant choons, you say?
“What song best represents modern Ireland to you? I want to do a playlist and I have some ideas about what artists should go on it: Villagers, The Gloaming, I Am The Cosmos, Mmoths, Le Galaxie, James Vincent McMorrow and Lisa O’Neill for example.
BUT, I also want your suggestions for what should be on the playlist too.
The only restriction is that the song has to have been released in the last five years so there’s no room for ‘Jump Around’ and the likes of Dropkick Murphy’s or The Pogues or Thin Lizzy or Luke Kelly…
On Friday, I’ll curate 25 songs into a Spotify playlist that can be sent out to all the expats, those celebrating St. Patrick’s Day abroad or your friends from other countries so you can send it to them and say – this is Irish music.”
A display at the Aislinn Education and Support Centre, Jervis Street, Dublin in memory of its co-founder Christine Buckley.
“As part of the display is a doll which was washed and dressed by Christine every week, symbolic of the fact that children in industrial schools had no toys or playthings, a card signed by survivors by a thumb print as many would have been unable to write due to illteracy, a picture of Christine with her European Volunteer of the Year Award, and flowers brought yesterday by children of a survivor who has left the country.”

I thought you might like this framed photo seen in a South East London pub last weekend. Blackheath is the oldest open rugby club in the UK formed in 1858. In 1890, the same year Gladstone refused to consider Home Rule for Ireland, our rugby team headed over to Blackheath to play a game of rugby with the English team.Anyone know what the score was?
