On 14th July 2020, Fontaines D.C. played a selection of songs from their 'Dogrel' and 'A Hero's Death' albums live at Kilmainham Jail as part of the Other Voices Courage Series. It is an old cliche for historians to ask ëif these walls could speak, what would they tell us?
Fortunately, the walls of Kilmainham Gaol tell us exactly how they feel. Faded with time, but still stubbornly there, are the messages of Ireland's revolutionary generations. Over one door are the quoted words of Patrick H. Pearse, poet and leader of the Easter Rising, thundering Beware of the Risen People. Perhaps the most evocative piece of graffiti in the prison reads simply A Few Men Faithful and a Deathless Dream.
The album arrives on 180g heavyweight black LP in a gatefold jacket. Dublin historian Donal Fallon has written an essay on Kilmainham Gaol which is featured on the back cover. Includes an exclusive poster. The product does not come with a download code.
