The great Gaels of Ireland
The race that God made mad
For all their wars are merry
And all their songs are sad
words remembered by John A. Roche
From a poem by G.K. Chesterton
Called "The Balled of the White Horse."
(thanks to Peter Fallon)
music derived from a traditional Irish fiddle tune entitled "John Roche's Favorite"
