  • Tóg é go Bog é was recorded mostly in the Liffey Arts Research Centre which was set up by Eoin O'Toole to analyse and record the curious and mysterious relationship between the arts and science. It was set up in 1988 and closed down due to undue pressure from the local county council in 2005.
  • Rusty Nails was on a Putomayo compilation called Dublin to Dakar. The compilers, however cut the track in half and only the first half of the track is on the album!
  • 'Sid' Andrew Clarke, Carnross native and guitarist with seminal Kells reggae band, Slump, engineered the first sessions.
  • The single taken from this album, Ón Taobh Tuathail Amach was an Irish Top Thirty chart hit! It was the first Irish language top thirty hit since Clannad's Harry's Game in 1985.
