John Hernandez Tune Req: Kilkelly Sheet Music (73* d) RE: Tune Req: Kilkelly Sheet Music 22 Jan 06

Mick is right that the song is based upon authentic letters, but he is also right that it has been sung to death. "Kilkelly" has become folk music's equivalent of "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling." I agree with Janice that it is overly maudlin, and I also agree with the anonymous guest who calls it a long dirge. Enough already. There are many better songs.
