I'm on a roll now

This is one of my favourite songs, sadly Christy keeps making a mistake in it when he refers to Volunteers Jim Straney and Liam Tomlinson - They weren't from the Falls but two IRA Volunteers who left East Belfast to fight Facism in Spain.

When he visited the Strand in 2002 to play what was a fantastic concert, we made it our business to show him their names on the local Republican Roll of Honour.

We'll forgive him I suppose and just remember that it's a great song, with a great message!!!
