Subject: RE: Chord Req: The Creggan White Hare
The first person I heard singing this song was the late Sean Dynes from Coalisland County Tyrone, the song is from that County, placenames in the song are all from Tyrone. Some jolly sportsmen came down from Pomeroy Dungannon and Cookstown and likewise the Moy, with their pedigree hounds which they brought from afar, and they landed in Creggan in their fine motor-cars.
Sean also recorded this song on an LP around the mid 1960s, his singing of this song, is the best version I have heard.
