Aidan Crossey Lyr Req: Darling Girl from Clare (Percy French) (23) RE: Girl from Clare (Percy French) 02 May 03

Check out Dick Hogan's version on his "Wonders Of The World" album where he also gives two superb accounts of other Percy French songs - "McBreen's Heifer" and "Tullinahaw".

French sort of fell out of favour for a few years, but I think he's experiencing something of a revival of interest.

Personally I think he was a great lyricist and if some of the stuff was a bit "B'Jaysus" for some tastes, in his defence it has to be said that he wrote with a great deal of understanding and compassion.

I still think "Eileen Óg" is one of the most poignant lost-love songs of his generation.
