The Pogues' Christmas classic Fairytale of New York (above) has already earned Shane MacGowan a cool €460,000 in royalties over the seasonal period.
The song, which hit No 1 in Ireland on its release in 1987 and which has returned to the top ten numerous times since, has become one of the most beloved and most played Christmas songs of all time. MORE HERE
