Gathering anthem goes coast to coast across US

A SONG dubbed the anthem of The Gathering has already been snapped up by US radio stations.

Kerry-born composer, Francie Conway (below) revealed he has received messages from people who've heard the song and are considering a trip to Ireland.

Conway's song 'Our River Keeps On Flowing', which also features Finbar Furey and Bob Spates, is already being played in the US, UK and Australia

The musician said he first began using the phrase "our river keeps on flowing" to explain to people as he toured abroad that Ireland was coming through its economic woes.

"The official release date is St Patrick's Day," he said. "But it has already gone to America. On Irish radio it will be played coast to coast in America on St Patrick's week." Irish Independent readers can download the song for free today from our website, Independent.ie.
