Comments regarding the Song Collection

 "This journey into Irish traditional song is well worth making, and will serve as a reference point for generations of performers, teachers, and students of Irish music.  An essential resource for schools, colleges, and libraries."  Peter Murphy Louth County Library, Dundalk, Ireland


Dear Cathal,
Just to congratulate you on the publication of your wonderful book and CD 'I Have Travelled This Country', which Dave alerted me to. I'm so much enjoying running through the songs on the CD, matching them up with the words, some of which I have never quite caught (ah! it was 'whirring moorcock'! Gotcha at last!), and listening to your astonishing performances. Really there's no-one who can sing these songs like you, and I'm delighted that Gerry O'Connor got you to record them. As with Hidden Fermanagh, it's essential to get them while we can.  Christopher Somerville
