Thread Name: Where is Spancil Hill?
Subject: RE: Where is Spancil Hill?
fantastic forum, my father sang original song but died in '98 RIP wish I had asked him where he had learned it from as the popular versions were much shorter, he sang in that sweet connemara brouge with whispering "S's" if that makes sense. Shed a tear each time I hear Spancil hill, sometimes on the inside but of late I don't care who sees a grown man cry. I write from Melbourne city many miles ,,,,,,,,,
