This song was inspired by Frank McCourt's best selling book 'Angela's Ashes'. The CD 'Songs From The Ashes' captures perfectly the mood of the book and the Limerick of the 1930's and 1940's. The songs are performed by local band Burning Embers who have come together especially for this project.

The White House Poetry Revival has being going now for over four years. Every Wednesday the famous old world bar is transformed into a centre of culture as poets recite their latest work. Barney Sheehan and Dominic Taylor , the people behind the revival of poetry at the White House, continue to attract the best of Irish and International poetry to Limerick. The reading has provided an open, supportive venue for countless poets to perform their work, and has fostered a community of poetry. Over the last four years the reading has grown, evolved and matured. We are proud to have provided an open-mic for poets from all over Ireland, Europe and the world: from Buddy Wakefield to Greg Delanty to hundred of others you have never heard, but should have. The reading continues to grow and change and we would invite you to come down, to listen - and should the mood strike you - to speak.
