I listened with a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye to the John Murray show on RTE 1 Radio this morning. His guest was the singer-songwriter Jimmy McCarthy, from Cork. Together they presented a moving and deeply sensitive programme dedicated to the six Irish students who lost their lives ever so tragically in Berkeley, California earlier this week.
Among the songs Jimmy sang was the one I want to share here-” Ride On”. This is the only video I could find on You Tube featuring the singing of Jimmy. It features two other tunes which I don’t know how to remove, but perhaps we could think of them pointing to the joy, life and richness so tragically snatched from grieving family and friends.
Other than sharing this, I am speechless.
