Junior Chills – Emerald Isle (Original)

Junior Chills – Emerald Isle (Acoustic Original)

It took me quite a lot of time to decide whether or not to put this song online…and the songs which are to follow. It was a decision I made on the basis of history and my love for history and I didn’t want to miss the chance due to the significance of 2016. This year is the centenary of the Easter Rising, which was an event which took place throughout Ireland in 1916 with a focus on Dublin City Centre. It was an event which triggered a whole series of events which would transform the political landscape of Ireland forever.

The song itself is a brief, maybe rushed, synopsis of Ireland’s history. There are a lot of different events alluded to in the song and the order is quite disjointed. I think that this is because when I wrote the song different periods of Ireland’s history were coming to me at different times and I liked the way that it did not flow chronologically.

Although academics would frown on this being included here, if you want a brief history of Ireland check out the following link:

All in all, the message in the song is one of hope for Ireland. Hope and peace.

I hope you like it.
