One of our favorite "closing" songs, whether at a pub or funeral. We also sing "Men of Erin" written by contemporary artist by Ian Byrne, a native of County Wicklow, who fronts The Elders.

A friend and I and my ex-wife sang "The Parting Glass" at the graveside during my grandfathers funeral.

Was that Leslie, Joe? Have we invited Leslie to join WG, BTW?
