Stories in Sound: Split the Sap

Marty Cullen has grown up within the Armagh sport of bullets since he could walk. It is a world full of burly men, headstrong champions and unhappy wives. The game is formally known as 'road bowls' and involves two competitors hurling a 28-ounce metal cannonball down a country road. Whoever crosses the finish line in the least amount of shots wins the match or 'score' as it's called locally. Now that he is older and a vibrant member of the traditional singing scene, Marty wants to write a song for the men he spent his childhood following along the roads.
