RTE Kingsmills Atrocity Survivor Interview MP3 Download

RTE Kingsmills Atrocity Survivor Interview MP3 Download

Above is a link to an MP3 download (30mb approx) of Alan Blacks powerful interview on RTE on Sunday last 14th January 2018. This was definitely the catalyst which spelt the end of MP Barry Mcelduffs career. Even though he never even once set foot in Westminister he claimed £900,000 EXPENSES (your & my taxes) since being elected in 2010.

Furthermore Mrs Bea Whorton the 80 year old mother of victim Kenny Whorton who was shot in the face, has since November last year regularly recieved vicious phone calls where the caller demanded 10 slices of Kingsmill bread. She suffered in silence until the Mcelduff incident as she did not want to upset her family. So Mcelduff claims he did not know what he was doing when this sick joke about Kingsmill massacre is well known and oft repeated in republican circles really rings even more hollow. READ MORE BELOW:

 Mrs Bea Whorton victims mothers malicious "Kingsmill" phone calls 
 
Sinn Feins Martin O'Muilleoir is guilty of spreading the cancer by immediately retweeting this vile, to use Alans words, 'depaved' video. But O'Muilleoir's sickeningly deferential treatment by the media who never once questioned his actions speaks volumes.

Lastly can Mcelduff account for his own movements on the night of the massacre!

Ashokan Farewell (V)



The sun is sinking low in the sky above Ashokan
The pines and the willows know soon we will part
There's a whisper in the wind of promises unspoken
And a love that will always remain in my heart

My thoughts will return to the sound of your laughter
The magic of moving as one
And a time we'll remember long ever after
The moonlight and music and dancing are done

Will we climb the hills once more?
Will we walk the woods together?
Will I feel you holding me close once again?
Will every song we’ve sung stay with us forever?
Will you dance in my dreams or my arms until then?

Under the moon the mountains lie sleeping
Over the lake the stars shine.
They wonder if you and I will be keeping
The magic and music, or leave them behind.

This hauntingly beautiful melody Ashokan Farewell was written in the style of a Scottish lament and commemorated the sense of longing and loss Jay Unger experienced at the finale of the Ashokan Music & Dance camp festivals he and his wife used to attend. It became famous as the theme tune of the American Civil War documentary series. This version is played by Captain Jr Perkins of the Band Of Her Majesty's Royal Marines album titled Ashokan Farewell, and can be purchased from the URL below:

Vimy Ridge (V)

Sung by Lizzie Hoyt - recorded on her Home album 2005

Early in the morning, the cold snow falling down, Easter of 1917. My love climbed out from the tunnels underground and stepped to no-man’s land in between.


His last night was spent in the ground of the French land; with thousands of men he did wait. He laid down his head upon the barrel of his gun, a dark and cruel symbol of his fate.


Oh, my love can’t touch you now or calm the fear that’s building deep within. Oh, the terror you must have felt, waiting below the hill at Vimy Ridge.


An overpowering thunder from the creeping barrage left no room for thoughts within their minds. Forty pounds loaded down, the horror lingered on imprinted in their memories for all time.


Oh, my love can’t touch you now or calm the fear you’re feeling deep within. Oh, the terror you must have felt, fighting on the hill at Vimy Ridge


A hard thump on his chest stopped time in its tracks; his lucky streak had come and now had passed. Ahead lay the fury, behind was a different scene: a quiet kingdom of death and casualties.

He lay waiting for the stretcher bearer to come. The cold wind froze the clothes to his body. Disbelief came over him “This couldn’t really be for I am now a young man still with dreams!”


Oh, my love can’t touch you now or calm the fear you’re feeling deep within. Oh, the terror you must have felt, dying on the hill at Vimy Ridge.

Early in the morning, the cold snow falling down, Easter of 1917. My love climbed out from the tunnels underground and stepped to no-man’s land in between.

Men of Mourne (V)

 
Brunswick Accordian Band from Annalong Co Down. Playing a piece especially composed for the bands pilgrimage to the battlefields of the Somme. They were following the journies made 100 years before by many young men from their village and surroundings, particularly those who did not return. 

Many of the bands members were able to visit the last resting places of their relatives and pay their respects to them. The tune is entitled appropriately enough "Men of Mourne". It was composed especially for the band just for this occasion at the Menin Gate the memorial to the fallen who were never found. Captain Alex Knox a Scot wrote the music. 

He was for many years a director of music at Kneller Hall. Capt Knox said "When planning the "Men of Mourne", I wanted to represent the Granite Men with a strong melody but have a lilting style to capture the fishing tradition of the village."  

In just four days following the return of the band from Flanders, the clip was visited 16,000 times . 

Enjoy!

On tha Road to Passchendaele (V)

There’s a light that shines in Flanders
As a beacon for the brave
From the distant past it wanders
To recall the lives they gave
And it tells each generation
To be wise and never fail
To remember those who've fallen
On the road to Passchendaele

Chorus (x2)
On the road to Passchendaele
On the road to Passchendaele
Where the brave will live forever
On the road to Passchendaele

Come wi me and I will show you
Why all wars should ever cease
Take a walk among the gravestones
And your tears will cry for peace
For their spirits walk in Flanders
You can hear the grieving wail
For the brave who laid their lives down
On the road to Passchendaele

Chorus (x2)
On the road to Passchendaele
On the road to Passchendaele
Where the brave will live forever
On the road to Passchendaele
