I started kind of slow with the research and then started recording around 2009/2010.” One of the many highlights of Beyond the Bog Road is the pairing of Irish tunes to an American counterpart, allowing listeners to hear the similarities and influence of one on the other. John Martin, a veteran Irish patriot, returned to Ireland from America. He repented that he was disobedient to Axal's will; he prayed that the angel might come to him again. This poem is living; it has completely, not the feeling of the countryside— other Irish poets have got that into their poems— but the feeling of the village which no other Irish poet has got: The fair was just the same as then, Five years ago to-day, When first you left the thimble-men And came with me away.
