Athenry The Place With Everything

The Fields of Athenry

Want to live in the FAMOUS Athenry?

The town of Athenry is immortalised in the song ‘The Fields of Athenry’ which was written by Pete
St. John in the 1970s. It tells the story of a young man who is caught stealing corn from Lord Trevelyn during the Irish Famine and who is deported to Botany Bay in Australia as punishment.

The song has been recorded by several Irish Artists, the most successful of which was Paddy Reilly whose recording remained in the Irish Charts for 72 weeks in 1983.

It may now be regularly heard on terraces and stands throughout Ireland and internationally as it has been adopted by Rugby and Football teams.
