EdR. A beautiful recording of "The Blue Hills of Antrim" is by Eileen Donaghy(Tyrone), Fontana EP(45), TFE 17145, which was done in the early 60's. The later verses she sings seem very different from other versions I've seen. This EP still shows up on Ebay/UK from time to time, along with some of her other LP recordings. A more recent, and, if possible, even more beautiful version is by Maureen Hegarty(Derry/Donegal), and available on You/Tube. The verses there are those listed earlier. I wish I could find some of Maureen's CD's. Ed
