Fresh after his Eastenders role, Patrick Bergin has announced details of his next release, a double a-side to follow up on his recently released debut.
“If you ever see Jesus again” and “Tipperary Waltz” will be released on May 18th via Avalon Records. Tipperary Waltz is a song very personal to Patrick, his father Paddy heard him perform “It’s a long way to Tipperary” and said it was a recruiting song for the British army and wanted him to write something that in time could replace it in peoples mind. it’s set around World War 1 where Patrick’s fathers uncle had fought in the Somme and came back a shocked and damaged man. “Uncle Hugh” appears in the artwork of the single.
A line in the song “the ghosts of the men he shot still haunted him” was a reference to Tipperary freedom fighter Dan Breen who had told Patrick’s father about his experiences.
