Luka Bloom & Steve Cooney: The Race Runs Me (Live in Lahinch) - for The Irish Olympians

"The Race runs me: so said Sonia O'Sullivan, one of Ireland's great Olympians, in her autobiography. She was describing a rare moment in a perfect race, running with the cream of top athletes. Sometimes there are moments when you are oblivious to crowd, noise, flags. You are running together. It only lasts a moment but in this precious moment I am no longer running a race; the race is running me. This song is dedicated to all the Irish athletes who work so hard to arrive at their peak, and give so much to bring a little joy in these troubled times. And this version is from a recent gig in Kenny's, in Lahinch, County Clare. I was performing with my friend Steve Cooney. What a night, what a buzz; and among the singers in the crowd, you can hear the voices of my new friends in the Osterbro Pigekor Choir from Copenhagen." (Luka Bloom).
