This Rendition Of ‘Grace’ In Kilmainham Gaol Will Give You The Chills
The Coronas' frontman Danny O’Reilly, his sister Róisín O'Reilly and their cousin Aoife Scott recorded a rendition of ‘Grace’ within the walls of Kilmainham Gaol.
 
The rendition was covered to mark the anniversary of 1916 back in 2016. 
 
The song 'Grace' was written in 1985 by Frank and Seán O'Meara and tells the story of Grace Gifford, the woman who married Joseph Plunkett in Kilmainham Gaol hours before his execution for his role in the Easter Rising.
 
This is breathtaking.
 
The full version was aired on Easter Monday as part of RTÉ's Centenary.
