A Galway man has annoyed people in the UK with this song he wrote about Brexit

It didn't sit well with some people...

David Flaherty, from Galway, is now living over in London. A drummer, he's been in various bands over the years but he recently bought a guitar and decided to try his hand at writing a few songs.

As you do.

He wrote a song last year called 'Snowflakes' and, well, you probably see where this is going.

The lyrics of the song are based around the failed Remain referendum campaign, the subsequent fall-out, political correctness and his belief that millennials are obsessed with social media and likes.

It was recorded in November last year and he made 30 CDs, sending them around to various radio DJs in the UK.

The song was played yesterday by high profile radio DJ Steve Lamacq - the man credited with launching the careers of Oasis, Blur and Coldplay, among others - on the BBC Radio 6 music show.
