Tears of Catholic Ireland to Flow Again

Are these days returning to Ireland? Are these days returning to Ireland?
For 200 years the English did not allow a Mass to be said in Ireland.  Priests would secretly enter Ireland from France but if discovered would be executed.  This is the story of one such priest. The song is a love song to the Blessed Eucharist. Brings to mind the Bible "song of solomon".    But we Irish must never forget that England too had her Catholic Martyrs.  Priests caught in England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1,  were hung drawn and quartered.   .

Because of the sad outcome to the recent referendum in Ireland I thought for your upliftment I would share a wee youtube video I made.  It is the true story behind “An raibh tú ar an gCarrig”.  (Where you at the rock”) This is a well-known Irish love song.  It was written about the Blessed Eucharist - secretly - so the listening Protestants would think the singer -- a Priest who had lost the little pouch in which he kept the Eucharist -- was singing about human lovers. The “rock” is the secret Mass Rock.  A friend of mine at SSPX Mass Michael O’Farell is the poet and tells the story in English as well.  God Bless you all,
