That "Another Country" CD is the only recording of this
"killybegs" I have heard, and it is super. The entire CD is surely a keeper. Talk about "crossover." It was a cross-over for the Chieftains, but it was more of a "homecoming" for folks joining up with them. Them roots gits pretty tangled after a generation or two.
Two quite different songs have been confused in this thread. To avoid further confusion, please post here (click) if you want to discuss KILLYBEGS by Jimmy Ibbotson (of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) and Paddy Moloney (of the Chieftains), or here (click) if you want to discuss THE BOYS OF KILLYBEGS by Tommy Makem. --JoeClone, 6-Nov-05.
