So the last song in this Dolores Keane series. As I’ve mentioned she was one of the founder members of the band De Dannan at the beginning of her career. Here’s one of the songs she sang with them. Another about Irish people and their emigration to America by the way.
“Isle Of Hope, Isle Of Tears’ is the song about Ellis Island and first immigrants that came there, particularly about Annie Moore who was Irish. This is a very popular song in Ireland, or maybe it’s just my impression, anyway it has loads of interpretations. This one is the first I’ve heard. And I think my favourite.
