Trivia Composer Harry Gregson-Williams heard a boy (Brian O'Donnell) singing on the street for money in Dublin when he arrived to spend a few days on the set of the film. Later, he tracked the boy down again and recorded him singing six or seven folk songs acapella in a quiet alley. Gregson-Williams chose "Fields of Athenry" from the recording and added his own music around the song. See more »
