‘You’d think the whole country of Erin was waiting to get on the boat. There’s accents from Antrim to Kerry, from Westport to the high hills of Howth. And in no time, we’re into Dun Laoghaire, and the dawn rising clear in the sky. I’m on the last leg of my journey. It’s hello to the fair Aran Isles.’
Howth Singing Circle is delighted and honoured to launch
Mór Mo Mhalaidh – Great Is My Praise! –
a CD by our esteemed, late President Diarmuid Ó Cathasaigh. It is a quality recording of Diarmuid singing in Irish and English, playing tunes and delivering recitations in his inimitable style. An interesting booklet provides provenance for all items and much about Diarmuid’s fascinating, life-time engagement with and commitment to traditional culture.Andy Burke does the launch supported by Dave O’Connor, Liam O’Donoghue & Helena Rowsome with tracks from the Diarmuid’s CD and a video of a recitation.
