A link for Dong

This is a bit of a "saw this and thought of you" posting for Dong, but anyone else who likes great folk music and isn't put off by footage of steam trains might well enjoy it too.

The first three and a half minutes of this video on YouTube are taken up with marvellous steam footage and an old Irish song of the railway; a bit later on there's a great "session" in a local boozer. The video's a tad over 8 minutes long. Perfect for Dong to enjoy as he wakes himself up with the second cup of coffee of the day. That'll be around 11ish, then.

Here's the link, enjoy:

See, I said I had a couple of hours to kill before Milly arrives home.
