    Where the ocean kisses Ireland, the waves caress it's shore! The most amazing lyrics are found in this tune!

Lyrics

We went out to a weekend festival on Clare Island in August 1990
and on the boat back on a perfect autumn evening the green and red of mayo was conceived with well known Galway free-spirited minstrel jarir al-majar. It became a song about a year later

Oh the Green and Red of Mayo

The Saw Doctors - Green and Red of Mayo Lyrics
