The Long way, written by Matt McGinn, Gareth Dunlop and Kim Richey, is a warm yet heartbreaking view of a relationship that is faltering under the huge stresses and strains of everyday life. The song addresses this with its message being, to slow down and look at what's really important.
The song features Na Leanai (or the Children of the Sands Family) who are a group of young and very talented individuals who's pedigree in the Irish tradition needs no question.
