To Hell or Barbados is the fourth studio album by Irish singer-songwriter Damien Dempsey released in Ireland and the UK in June 2007. An expanded edition was released on 2 November 2007, complete with a bonus CD of additional material.
The album name and title track are taken from the book of the same name by Sean O'Callaghan, an account of the tens of thousands of Irish people sent as slaves to Barbados during the Cromwellian campaign in Ireland. "To hell or Barbados" were the only options provided by Cromwell to the "white slaves", or Redlegs as they became known.
The album features Irish folk musician Sharon Shannon and sisters Yamina and Nadia Nid El Mourid from the French band Lo'Jo
