Sleeve Notes

Throughout Ireland's History — of foreign oppression — the spirit of Freedom and National Resurgent has been kept alive and handed down from generation to generation through Patriotic Ballads and Songs of Freedom. Sung by ancient Bards, wandering street Balladeers and light down to our own generation when the tradition is being continued by the numerous folk singing groups who have emerged and who flourish in the newly awakened spirit of Nationalism consciousness. This record contains the finest examples of Freedom songs in Ireland's chequered history, and are sung by folk groups and artists from as far apart as Rebel Cork to Resurgent Ulster some of whom actually participated in the struggle for Irish Freedom from foreign domination.
