The Dubliners - McAlpine's Fusiliers (Live)

The Dubliners area fantastic musicians - a traditional Irish music group, who I listen to regularly

They play quite a few tunes in their repertoire - that fit well with the fife and lambeg drumming tradition.

This tune begins with a poem, with the opening line that makes me smile every time!

'In the year of 39 and the sky was full of lead, when Hitler was heading for Poland and Paddy for Holyhead' - Fantastic!!
