I've been to a fair few Wolfe Tones gigs back in the day, and loved them, they were like going to mass for us back in the day. But I'm not old enough to have seen any Dubliners gigs. My parents went to plenty of them up at the Belgard and the Silver Granite

Luke's Raglan Road is incomparable to anything else, in my book.

At Boulavogue, as the sun was setting
O'er bright May meadows of Shelmalier,
A rebel hand set the heather blazing
And brought the neighbors from far and near.

Then Father Murphy, from old Kilcormack,
Spurred up the rocks with a warning cry;
"Arm! Arm!" he cried, "for I've come to lead you,
For Ireland's freedom we fight or die."
