Springhill

I come from a mining community, though the pits were dying as I grew up, so this story touches something deep in me.  Fifty years, and they are still remembered.


And another version from the Dubliners:

This comment on the second video made me cry and smile at the same time:
I went to the moamorly last night,The woman who wrote this song was there,The got Anne Murry to talk about it,She was 13 at the time im only 10 but i understud it i alomost cryed

My (great)Uncel Harold died in there witch i dont know him but still,Rember '58!50 years since!RIP miners

I can't watch the videos because I'll cry through them. Springhill is only a few hours drive from here and I've heard about it all my life. One of our good friends lost his father in that cave-in 50 years ago.
