In the Christy Moore songbook, the note, that I presume Christy wrote himself about 'Follow Me Up To Carlow' states that "They don't write them like this anymore"

It certainly has always been a favourite of mine.

Feilim Mac Fiach Mac Aodha Ó Beirne was a another boy that lead the palesmen a merry dance.

It was Fiach's clan who saved Aodh Rua Ó Domhnaill from starving and freezing to death in the Wicklow mountains after he escaped from Dublin Castle in the winter of 1592. Art Ó Néill died and Aodh Rua lost a few digits. Fiach nursed him back to health and secured him passage back to Donegal

Andy Irvine sings that too does he?
I've never heard Andy sing it. You did recognize Christy's voice, didn't you, Audi??

No ! He must have been very different-sounding when he was young if Christy Moore sang that. I don't believe he did. I'll google it now ... Or should I say wiki it ?
