I first heard "McAlpine's Fusiliers" on a Dubliners recording. The version I sing is taken from Soodlum's 100 Irish Ballads Volume 2 who describe it as a song written by Dominic Behan and concerns Irishmen who emigrated to Britain to work on the building sites and motorways.
"McAlpine's Fusiliers" has been recorded by:
The Dubliners on "Wild Rover" CD(s) & MP3 Album(s)
The Clancy Brothers on "In Concert" CD(s) & MP3 Album(s)
The Clancy Brothers on "In Person At Carnegie Hall/ In Concert/ Luck of the Irish" CD(s) & MP3 Album(s)
The Dubliners on "Ageless Classics"
The Dubliners on "Definitive Transatlantic Collection"
The Dubliners on "20 Original Greatest Hits Vol.3"
Various Artists on "Emerald Favourites"
