Thread Name: Lyr Req: Darling Girl from Clare (Percy French)
Subject: RE: Girl from Clare (Percy French)
You could also add, "Gortnamona", French when he wrote this song, had the terrible experience of suffering the sad death of his young wife in childbirth.
Brendan O`Dowda had Phillip Green write the music to accompany this beautiful, though sad song.
French was a genius, unrecognised by our old friend ,the musical snob. Ard Mhacha.
