A Ted Kennedy Tribute

An Irish lullaby suggested by one KVer in his honor. JFK was mentioned on the KV blog back in October 2008, in regard to his visit to the LES back in 1960 Also John Jr.'s softball playing in Coleman Oval in the late 1980's and early 90's, was mentioned in November of 2008.
As a personal aside from an early baby boomer, I never could understand the appeal of Patti Page. Also not all KVers agree on the legacy of Ted Kennedy. For some pros and cons I'll direct you here
Over in Killarney,
Many years ago,
Me mother sang a song to me
In tones so sweet and low.
Just a simple little ditty,
In her good old Irish way,
And I'd give the world if she could sing
That song to me this day.
Hush, now don't you cry!
That's an Irish lullaby.
