My Heart's Tonight In Ireland (In The Sweet County Clare)

This performance of Andy's Irvine's song about the early days of Sweeney's Men in the 1960s in County Clare features a who's who of Irish musicians and refers to Scariff, Kilrush, Sixmilebridge, Kilkishen, Lahinch, Ennistymon, Liscannor, Kikee and especially Miltown Malbay where

My heart tonight is far away across the rolling sea
In the sweet Miltown Malbay it is there I'd love to be
So long ago and far away but nothing can compare
My heart's tonight in Ireland in the sweet County Clare
