Nice pull @Thomas Morrow . I remember the Long Kesh was an HMS prison ship that housed IRA guys

It was a detention center known as the longkesh that was primarily used for paramilitary prisoners (ira). This is actually one of my favorite Irish folk groups

* comrades' ghosts are behind me...a rebel I came, and I'm still the same...*

Awesome. Ieish folk songs (especially rebel songs) have always been my favorite

I'll never forget the headline of an article I saw when I was a kid in the 80s... "Ireland: Europe's Last Third World Country"
