    We went out to a weekend festival on Clare Island in August 1990
    And on the boat back on a perfect autumn evening the green and red of mayo was conceived with well known Galway free-spirited minstrel jarir al-majar. It became a song about a year later

    Oh the Green and Red of Mayo
    I can see it still
    It's soft and craggy bogland
    It's tall majestic hills
    Where the ocean kisses Ireland
    And the waves carress it's shore
    Oh the feeling it came over me
    To stay forever more
    Forever more

    From it's rolling coastal waters
    I can see Croagh Patrick's peak
    Where one Sunday every Summer
    The pilgrims climb the reek
    Where Saint Patrick in it's solitude
    Looked down across Clew Bay
    And With a ringing of his bell
    Called the faithful there to pray
    There to pray

    Oh take me to Clare Island
    The home of Granuaile
    It's waters harbour fishes
    From the herring to the whale
    And now I must depart it
    And reality is plain
    May the time not pass so slowly
    Before I set sail again
    Set sail again

    The Green and Red of Mayo
    I can see it still
    It's soft and craggy bogland
    It's tall majestic hills
    Where the ocean kisses Ireland
    And the waves carress it's shore
    The feeling it came over me
    To stay forever more
    Forever more
