The Fields Of AthenryPosted: November 10, 2013 Filed under: Ireland Leave a comment
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?
It would not have surprised him anyway.
