‘Those days are but a memory like the snow of yesteryear
And evening shades are falling all alone I shed a tear
On my cheek I feel the soft touch of the winds that whisper low
When I mowed Pat Murphy’s meadow in the sunny long ago’

The Silence of Covid 19
- For singers and musicians, the Lockdown imposed by Covid 19 means no sessions. Howth Singing Circle is in abeyance until precautions are eased and it is safe to reassemble to enjoy each other’s company and songs. There are, of course, many Zoom sessions being held and you can both tune in and enjoy some singing or you can seek to participate yourself. We are aware of Zoom sessions being promoted by Bray, An Góilín, The Night Before Larry Got Stretched and The Sunflower, Belfast, and would recommend them to you. There is also a Cancelled Singing Sessions FB page. Many musicians are also hosting events online – either as live sessions or recordings. Those who earn their living from performance are, like many others in different walks of life, suddenly bereft of income. You can help by contributing by purchasing artists’ material that is available through Bandcamp and other hosting platforms, direct from a favourite artist’s web or Facebook page where recordings can be sourced, or by showing your appreciation of online sessions like those held each Friday by our old friends Paul and Shona Anderson.
- We have been putting some recordings up on the Howth Singing Circle Facebook pages inviting you to enjoy artists like Niamh Parsons and Graham Dunne or Tony Fitzpatrick and to support their recordings. Of course, many hundreds of thousands are taking financial hits but for the vast majority of musicians, their income, even in good economic times, is precarious and erratic.
- If there is anything else you feel you would like Howth Singing Circle to do, please let us know.
- Until we can resume our normal activities, we salute our health care and other front-line workers for everything they are doing on all our behalf. Stay safe everyone.

Bheadh fliúit is orgán ag seinm ceoil duit / A thógfadh an brón seo go léir ód’ chroí.’

‘As down the glen came McAlpine’s men / With their shovels slung behind them ‘Twas in the pub they drank the sub /And up in the spike you’ll find them
They sweated blood and they washed down mud / With pints and quarts of beer And now we’re on the road again / With McAlpine’s fusiliers’
