Biography

The Dubliners was an Irish folk band founded in Dublin, Ireland, in 1962. One of the most influential Irish acts of the 20th century, they celebrated 50 years together in 2012, making them Ireland's longest surviving musical act. Also in 2012, the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards bestowed them with a Lifetime Achievement Award. The group announced their retirement in the autumn of 2012 following the death of founding member Barney McKenna (born 16 December 1939; died 5 April 2012). The surviving members of the group - with the exception of John Sheahan - continue touring under the name of "The Dublin Legends".

    As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains

    I saw a horse outside the door,
    Where my old horse should be.
    I called my wife and I said to her:

    While in the merry month of May from me home I started,
    Left the girls of Tuam so sad and broken hearted,
    Saluted father dear, kissed me darling mother,
    Drank a pint of beer, me grief and tears to smother,
    Then off to reap the corn, leave where I was born,
