Dundalk singer/songwriter Sinéad McNally found that her song 'Ballad of the Tiger' struck a chord with audiences when she played it live and has decided to release it as a single.

The Knockbridge teacher turned musician admits that she hadn't planned to release it as a single but such was the re-action from audiences, that she went into the studio and recorded it.

'Ballad of the Tiger' is a song not only about my own experiences over the last five years since the collapse of the economy but also the experience of most Irish people, those who have stayed here and those who have had to emigrate for work,' she explained. 'As well as recalling some of the darkest moments we have experienced, it also describes the hope we all have to recover and move on."

Lyrics such as 'two clocks ticking on the wall telling times abroad' and 'all we own for sale on the cheap just to make ends meet', are hitting home with listeners.

Since releasing the song on iTunes last weekend, Sinéad is thrilled with the reception it has received, tweeting that she is 'so proud to see it alongside names like Ed (Sheeran)'.

Dave O'Connor radio presenter with iRadio said 'this song actually reminds me of a modern day "Ordinary Man" by Christy Moore, a song that will strike a chord with everyone on this island. I can't remember the last time I played a song and genuinely was stopped in my tracks.'

Sinéad – who has enjoyed great success with songs such as 'Dance With Me' and 'Moody Blues'; performed at the Olympic Games last summer and won 'Best Female' at the MRU awards last December – describes the song as 'simple and honest'.

'The arrangement is very simple as I wanted the song stripped back with the attention focused on the the words of the song!'

Sinead is currently planning an Irish tour before the end of the year and promises that Dundalk will be included on the list of dates.

'Ballad of the Tiger' will be available to download from iTunes from this coming Friday, July 12.
