Here comes Anthony, 'Knockin' at your door'

Hubert Murphy

Usually associated with football teams playing in Championship finals and towns hosting the Fleadh, the idea of producing a 'theme tune' has certainly hit the right note with one local political hopeful.

Fianna Fail's Anthony Moore has declared he's coming to 'knock on your door' and he's singing about it!

Drogheda Urban local election candidate Anthony has launched a campaign song "Knockin' at your door", to accompany him and his team on the canvass trail until the elections on the 24th May.

Speaking to the "Drogheda Independent", he said "We're very conscious of the environment and want to avoid using posters if we can, so one night after a long canvass we thought it'd be a good idea to communicate with the people of Drogheda using a campaign song.

'Liam Leddy and Val Rogers came up with the idea. Liam, who's from the town and is a great writer of verse, collaborated with me on the lyrics and Val, who is an amazing guitarist from Termonfeckin, came up with a super arrangement to accompany them.

'I must say it was great to have Drogheda Urban and Drogheda Rural united behind me and my better half Tia ní Táilliúir joined in on the chorus.'

He also says he owes a huge thanks to Mark Newport Photography for putting the video together.

'So not only are we out now to try and top the poll and bring much-needed change of political leadership to Drogheda, we might also try and top the charts as well!"

The song can be heard on Anthony's facebook page: AnthonyMoore2019 or on YouTube
