Shane MacGowan - The Great Hunger, a 60 minute documentary containing scenes of the Irish countryside, singing and drinking. Some discussion of whether or not the Irish wish to be thought of as a country of people who stay too long at the pub. The audio seems to be out of sync with the video so it may give that tipsy feeling without that alcohol.

There was Barney McGee from the banks of the Lee,
There was Hogan from County Tyrone
There was Jimmy McGurk who was scarred stiff of work
And a man from Westmeath called Malone
There was Slugger O'Toole who was drunk as a rule
And fighting Bill Tracey from Dover
And your man Mick McCann from the banks of the Bann
Was the skipper of the Irish Rover
