  1. I have wrote my own original musical album and have wrote a song about the Irish Famine called ‘Bridie’. It is a song which delves into many different facets of The Famine and explores many themes…if you get the chance, check it out: https://juniorchills.wordpress.com/2016/07/09/junior-chills-album-eight-new-roses/

  2. Many thanks for your comment. Congratulations on your new album and wishing you every success with it.
