Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: Road to Dunmore (Robbie O'Connell)
Subject: RE: lyr.req: Road to Dunmore
Paddy is alive and (reasonably) well! He was performing at a small festival of traditional singing in Feakle, CO. Clare., at which he was presented with a special award for his contribution to traditional singing over the years. The voice is no longer what it used to be, of course, but the energy and spirit remain. Not sure what age he is - late seventies or so? I have his two books somewhere and must check.

HIs talent for controversy also remains - I might tell the story in the "song appropriatenes" thread!


p.s. Returning to the thread topic: if its Robbie O COnnell, the Dunmore is "Dunmore East", in Waterford, as Tom suggests earleir.
