This was actually a 45rpm EP (two songs per side) released in 1961 under the name of Labhrás Draipear (catalogue number GL17). Your chances of finding a copy are very slim, but, if you live in Ireland, you'd be able to listen to the record at the Irish Traditional Music Archive in Dublin.

His son, Labhrás, is a horseman and neighbor living in Kentucky. He's got the vinyl. I will make an inquiry on your behalf. (He's also got a wonderful pic of his father standing in the Cheltenham throng ringing Arkle in some early '60s Winner's Circle... great scene!...   there's a song that came out of it.)

Btw, the recording reveals a gorgeous baritone... glorious singing. Labhrás' daughter-in-law Pamela sings the song in his honor just about every chance I can coax it from her. The rendering (from each) is delivered with a high degree of quality and emotion. I am sorry that I did not get a chance to meet the man before his passing.

I am told that the senior Draipear was a school chum of (and an early influence on) Sean O'Riada as well as a long and dear friend of Seamus Ennis (who is being discussed on another active thread here in MC-land.)

Did anyone ever manage to get a copy of this 45? If so would I be able to obtain a copy from someone?
