Where we got our name

"The Fields of Athenry" is a song written in 1979 by Pete St. John in the style of an Irish folk ballad.

Set during the Potato Famine in Ireland in the 1840s, the lyrics feature a fictional man called Michael, his wife Mary and their baby from near Athenry in County Galway, where the potato fields lay empty ... the Fields of Athenry.
