Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.

My attempt at a song that came out of the 1981 hunger strikes about the fifth hunger striker to die in the H-Blocks. My family is from Belfast, and my cousin was in Long Kesh at the time of the strike, although he wasn't one of the strikers... he spent 16 years in prison and was never so much as charged with a crime. Consequently, this song means a lot to me.

Really good rendition of this tune I haven't heard before. I learned of the Hunger Strikes from TV in recent years and saw a mural on the show they did on a building there featuring Bobby.
