The Fields Of Athenry

One Saturday afternoon in the East Village Boyland drank a couple beers and played this song a bunch of times and wouldn’t shut up about how great it was.

There were a couple of possible responses to this and I picked the correct one which was to drink a couple beers and agree with him.


Years later I was in Ireland.  Dublin with RCK, then I rented a car and drove to Galway and points west.


On my way, I passed by signs for Athenry.


It looked boring.  I took a picture for Sean but I never showed it to him.  Why disappoint him?
