From the recording The Forest
This song is about an antique trunk that I bought from a farm in Westmeath. In looking into the meaning of a brass nameplate "A.C. Irvine", I found that the trunk used to belong to the Mnt Everest climber Sandy Irvine. Sandy died with fellow climber xxx in a 1924 summit attempt. Sandy's body still hasn't been found. How did his trunk get to Westmeath?
