My favourite song, posted by ranu

In Derry Vale

This is a song I learned when I was in third standard. I was a student in Presentation Convent School. I loved singing it when I was alone in the house. I’d sit on a corner of the verandah. One day I felt someone was sitting behind me, I turned around and found my sister laughing, she then told Dad I can sing. My Dad offered to pay money if I agreed to sing. I declined the offer.

I didn’t think of the lyrics then. Now I know how much our teachers(nuns) missed their home Ireland.

Sometimes I feel homesick and think of this song.
