Wolfe Tones to donate proceeds from ‘Come Out Ye Black And Tans’ to Peter McVerry Trust

Renewed interest in the Irish rebel song, Come Out Ye Black And Tans, has shot it the top of the charts.

The Wolfe Tones have announced that they will donate all proceeds made from the sale of their hit Come Out Ye Black And Tans to charity.

Currently number one in the iTunes Charts in both Ireland and the UK, the song has seen a sudden spike in interest following the controversy surrounding the proposed commemoration of the Royal Irish Constabulary.

Plans to commemorate the RIC and DMP, which were due to go ahead next week in Dublin Castle, have since been deferred by the government after strong opposition from the public and other politicians.

Following this recent success, the Wolfe Tones have decided to donate all proceeds made from downloads of the song to the Peter McVerry Trust – a charity who “do great work to the homeless”.
