"A Ballad For Modern Ireland" (THE IRISH TIMES)
"Song of hope for the nation".(KILKENNY PEOPLE)
“One of the most talked about songs to come out of Ireland in recent years”(IRISH AMERICAN NEWS) ...
"This is a beautiful Irish folk song about leaving the Emerald Isle and heading to America leaving behind the great love of his life - Ireland."
(NEW YORK TIMES. DAVID MIXNER) ...

(UK SONGWRITNG CONTEST)
"They'll sing it in bars across the world"
"Sadly every generation of Irish people needs new songs to comfort it's emigrants. This 'Emigrant's story' will be sung by Irish people everywhere who miss home."
(LUKA BLOOM. SINGER / SONGWRITER)
"I listened to the "Emigrants story" with a feeling of Pride and sadness. Up the Irish!!!"
(JOHNNY LOGAN, SINGER / SONGWRITER.THREE TIMES EUROVISION WINNER)
" 'Farewell, my lovely Ireland', is not a line that's used a whole lot in modern songwriting, but given the times we are living in it seems wholly appropriate"
"Strong sentiments set to a strong tune. Anthemic would be a good description. The track has a lovely feel and builds nicely. The lyrics clearly resonate with recent emigrants."
(FIACHRA TRENCH. SONGWRITER/COMPOSER/PRODUCER. PEARL HARBOUR, DIE HARD, THE BOXER. CO-WRITER "FAIRY TALE OF NEW YORK")
"There are so many great Traditional songs about Emigration, it's always a challenge to come up with an idea that will stand up. Paul has done just that with The Emigrants Story"
(NIALL TONER. MUSICIAN/SONGWRITER/RADIO PRESENTER. EUROPEAN BLUEGRASS MUSIC ASSOCIATION (EBMA) PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR AWARD WINNER 2013)
"Kealy allows the listener to some interpretive freeway. His lyrics, rather than dictating what they mean allow the listener to look to themselves for what the song 'means'-however individual our interpretation."
(THE IRISH VOICE)
"A poignant reminder that, despite the unforgivable desecration of family life by those trusted to look after our interests we Irish are of indomitable spirit. An important ballad which will shortly join those unforgettable songs of Ireland's colonisation, abuse, unrest and ultimate recovery. A song that is truly of our time."
(TOMM DOWLING KCLR 96FM)
"A very emotive sentiment, many will identify with"
(THE GATHERING IRELAND)
