Angie

I met her first while still a teenager and she went on to marry one of my oldest and best friends. It was she who told me about the guy who rode into a pub in Ballyfermot on a horse one night for a dare, rode up to the bar and ordered a pint, after which the pub was always known locally as the ‘High Chaparral’. She also told me about an area in Ballyfermot called the Californian Hills and showed it to me on an ordnance survey map to prove that it existed, something she knew because she had spent her early childhood there. This was the inspiration for the song ‘No Need To Roam’ from my latest album ‘Slipstring’ and I will always think of her when I sing it. She passed away this morning, Rest In Peace Angie.
