Mo Róisín Dubh

There are a number of ‘aisling’ songs from the Jacobite era (late 1700s) when to sing political songs in Ireland was prohibited, so poets composed poems with Ireland in the shape of a heroic, legendary woman who was in distress and calling for her ‘brothers from the pope in Rome’ to aid her…. This air was popularised by the late Sean O Riada in his wonderful film score for ‘Mise Eire’ (‘I am Ireland’).
