Subject: RE: Questions re: Come Out Black & Tans?
"Come out ye Black & Tans" featured on a double album released by the "Wolfe Tones" about 1980.It is currently available on their "Let the People Sing" CD. I am not sure who wrote it, I do own the 1980 album but i do not have it with me.

The highly republican nature of the song made it very popular around 1981 at the time of the Maze prison hunger strikes. I saw them perform it live on stage in the Limerick area at that time
