Beschreibung und Texte
Written in 1975 by Pierre Kartner (a.k.a Father Abraham).
Kartner supposedly wrote this; "...when he enjoyed a beer in this cozy café where everybody seemed to be happy. The song became famous all over the world."
The real name of the café is "Het Schippershuis" and it is opposite the harbour in the Dutch town of Hoorn.
This Furey's version was first heard on their 1987 album 'The Fureys Finest'
This video features the late Paul Furey, on accordion, who sadly died of bowel cancer on the 17th June 2002 at the Beaumont Hospital, Dublin.
