Tommy Makem, who played alongside the Clancy Brothers for many, many years was a man with a great love for poetry and song. I just love his rendition of Partick Kavanagh’s On Raglan Road and the song Gentle Annie. To me, this clip sums up so much of what is at the very heart of Ireland and Irishness.
