Richard Harris inspires dedication on Limerick CD
A Limerick band, Burning Embers, have just released a new album dedicated to the memory of Richard Harris. The album titled ‘Sarsfield’s Children ’ is on sale in local shops and on the Internet.

As the title suggests the CD contains a series of songs written about Limerick people some famous and some not. This is the second album from the band, their previous offering was a collection inspired by Frank Mc Courts book Angela’s Ashes, called ‘Songs From The Ashes’ and is still selling well. The new album was conceived after the success of ’Ashes’ and contains songs dedicated to the likes of Richard Harris, Tom and Paschal, Michael Hogan- the bard of Thomond, Jim Kemmy, Frank Mc Court and others.

The album, which took over three years to complete, is dedicated to local boy made good, actor Richard Harris. A special song on the album called ‘A Man Called Harris’ was recorded shortly before the actor died and had already been sent to his London address for his comments, however, he took ill shortly after and died. Local man and friend of the former actor Dermot Kelly, father of co author of the song Sean Kelly, presented a copy of the song to Harris’s son at the memorial service in London last year and he expressed his delights that his father was being honored in such a way.

‘Sarsfield’s Children’ also contains a poignant tribute to Alan and Jeffrey Roche who’s suicide was instrumental in setting up the Aljeff Treatment Center for drug rehabilitation. It was written after their brother, Tommy Roche, appeared on the Late Late Show and told their story. Later singer Sinead O’Connor got involved in fund raising for the center.

Speaking about the album this week band members and songwriters for the group Dominic Taylor and Sean Kelly said they expect the album to be very popular with Limerick exiles and they would like to think that their efforts in producing the album would be seen as a contribution to the cultural life of the city.

For those interested in purchasing the album through the Internet the website address is www.limerick.com
