That Christy Moore song
Known world wide for it' s matchmaking festival, Christy wrote a great song about the annual shagfest. I've included some of the lyrics as other verses require a degree in contemporary Irish culture :
How's it goin' there everybody, From Cork, New York, Dundalk, Gortahork and Glenamaddy.DHere we are in the County Clare. It's a long, long way from here to there.There's the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher, And the Tulla and the Kilfenora,Miko Russell, Doctor Bill,Willy Clancy and Noel Hill.Dlutes and fiddles everywhere.If it's music you want,You should go to Clare.
CHORUS : Oh, Lisdoonvarna, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoon, Lisdoonvarna! Everybody needs a break,Climb a mountain or jump in a lake.Some head off to exotic places,Others go to the Galway Races.Mattie goes to the South of France,Jim to the dogs, Peter to the dance.A cousin of mine goes potholing,A cousin of heres loves Joe Dolan.Summer comes around each year,We go there and they come here.Some jet off to ... Frijiliana,But I always go to Lisdoonvarna
