An Irish Morning

Jack’s favorite song is “The Hills of Connemara” by Gaelic Storm’s (from their selftitled first album).

He recently asked me what the song was about so this morning (when it popped up on the “Sunday with Jack and Pancakes” playlist on the iPod) I hit the old google and checked it out. Here are the words (with pennywhistle notation which I’ll try out later when I find my pennywhistle).

I also found a site listing a great many Irish songs and traditional music lyrics which is very cool and a site for Connemara itself which looks lovely. Jack and I both want to go there. Maybe that will be our next family trip. Ann’s been talking about going back to Ireland for years so I expect we’ll have no trouble talking her in to it…
