It’s great to hear Christy Moore back in the saddle. I heard this on Risin’ Time early one morning last month as I struggled to get up to go to training. It’s a fantastic little ditty about an old motorbike; I especially love the way that Christy places it so firmly in Kildare. I have memories as a child of going to play (well watch other people play) GAA matches at all of the places mentioned. Also, I’m pretty sure that my Grandad used have a Honda 50 and he used give Dad lifts to school on it. However, I think Dad fell off it one day and broke his leg and that put paid to that. From the sounds of it, the whole operation was fairly precarious as Grandad was fifty when dad was born, meaning that by the time Dad had reached his boyhood, Grandad was an old man. I wonder did he ever get it up to a hundred and fifty on a windy day?
