Being Irish in England: Paul Brady still holds true

GM posted this on Facebook ages ago, but when all is said and done, this is the finest song about being Irish in Britain.
From the wonderful five part Philip King Bringing it All Back Home documentary of the early 90s.
The CD is remarkable in that is brings together the usual suspects: U2, Christy Moore and Hothouse Flowers, but also that there are stellar performances from the Everly Brothers and Luka Bloom.
