From their first rehearsal in Ray's house, on the Falls Road, they really hit it off and decided to give it a go. According to Danny, "The Troubles were in full swing and all being Wolfhounds,The - Over The Wall(Crumlin Kangaroos) Republican families, we said we were going to play our part through our music or anything else.
From that moment on the Wolfhound became the Republican movement's Group. In the first year or so, Wolfhounds,The - Over The Wall(Crumlin Kangaroos) band was playing everywhere to get out the message.

The week after the Long Kesh incident, Paddy McGuigan gave the band his brilliant "Boys of the Old Brigade" to record, which was their first single record.
Danny wrote "Over the Wall" the same day, and it went into the Irish charts the following week. None of the band remembers too much about their visit to the US except that they received the keys to Leaf And Stream - Wishbone Ash - Argus from Mayor Coleman Young.

They then set up Derry records exclusively for the Wolfhound—nobody knew who the directors were. Today Gogie is living and playing in Greenland, in Nuuk—the capital city—to be exact, with his wife Christine, Ray is still in Belfast, and Kieran is playing in England.
Danny moved to Canada and formed a very popular ballad group in Vancouver. Sadly, Danny passed away, very suddenly, on May 7, They all kept in touch and remained friends.
