I wonder how much truth there is in it.....Sounds like the words of Shanes manager. So 15yrs on and we might be getting twentieth century paddy if the above is to be believed. I wont get too excited given the amount of times we were going to have a new album over the years but i hope to god its true. Good few clancy covers rocked up and well all be laughin. The jools thing wouldnt have done much for me id say. More or less the same as with Sharon Shannon, come on sing rainy night, fairytale and two more. New album, new tunes, new gigs. Philip, if yer reading, is there any truth in the above article? Philip do you write much music these days? I was just listening to faithful departed and if i had to choose a fav song of all time it would prob be that.
