This poem by Finbarr O’Farrell first appeared in a Workers Party publication in the late 1980′s. Christy Moore, along with many other celebrities,from Ireland and further afield pledged their allegiance to the Irish cause at the time. Moore in particular was vociferous in his support of the “Republican Struggle”-without perhaps pausing to ponder what the human cost was. It may have interfered with his celebruty status.
