Seems like on March 17th nearly everyone lays claim to
have some sort of Irish blood flowing through their viens.
featured in a movie the other night called "Agnes Browne".
A funny, tender movie set in Dublin in the '60's
staring Angelica Houston (with her well put on Irish accent)
who plays a widow with 7 children.
She barely earns enough money with her market stall but still
manages to keep the family afloat all the
while dreaming of seeing Tom Jones in concert and dodging the local loan shark.
This song is played during a tender moment between
her best friend Mary and herself.
I love this rendition by Canadian singer Laura Smith.
Who would know better on how to sing this song
but a lady who married a lighthouse keeper and moved to Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia?
