Niall Toner – The 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.
Nick says: Time for a comeback?
