Niall TonerThe Last Wolf On The Mountain

Whither the wolf?

Carlow-based country blues troubadour Niall Toner (top) has written a poignant lament imagining the last days of the noble four-legged hunter on these shores. (The wolf has been extinct in Ireland since 1786).

Maybe [Green Party leader]Eamon Ryan was listening?

The song is written from the point of view of the doomed craythur and would have fit perfectly in Johnny Cash‘s twilight testaments.

Fiaz Farrelly‘s atmospheric video is also visually striking and the use of a drone as it hovers over the Blackstairs Mountains adds a real sense of grandeur.

Nick says: Time for a comeback?

    Ah…Toner is the real deal – and a great authority on the genre; like the late Sandy Harsch.

    You don’t tend to see the likes of them in the various so-called celebrity photo-shoots on here!
