Revisiting 'The Forgotten Children' by Aidan Doyle

In November 2014 we featured the The Forgotten Children as part of our Songwriter Showcase with Christy Moore. This song was shortlisted by Christy as part of that songwriter showcase, and while it did not win the final award it was a close second.  Aidan has updated the audio and has created this new video to go with it. “The song written about the children who were killed in the 1916 Easter Rising by stray gunfire,while outside playing and going about their lives unaware of the conflict happening around them. They were aged between 2yrs and 16yrs. Sadly they were forgotten from our history for almost 100 years. A recent  book by RTE’s Joe Duffy called Children of the Rising brought their story back to life as part of the 2016 celebrations.  It is fitting therefore to revisit this song and the new video that accompanies it.
