This transcription on
is by his son Joe, who adds:

"Much has come and gone in Ireland since the early
days of this century. Nothing remains
the same in a world that has long
since entered its most advanced technological
age. But poets dream their
dreams, and the heart of every Irishman
longs for the Ireland he once knew."
