Hi,

I'm just wondering does anyone have an lp's of Labhrás Draper from Ring Gaeltacht in County Waterford? I used to have an LP of his years ago but it seems to have gotten lost. Any help would be much appreciated.

Do you know the Irish (Gaeilge) version of the surname?

Would there be one? It's an Anglo-Norman name and I believe it's often spelt Dreaper in Ireland.

Paul Draper

From The Session - Advert for Concert (2006?):

Géill Slí: Labhrás Draper hails from the Ring Gaeltacht in the County Waterford where ?for generations - his family kept a pub. His father, Labhrás, was a singer of note both for the fine quality of his baritone voice, as well as his honest connection to songs in the Irish language. In the 1960s, Gael Linn issued an LP featuring four (two to a side) of the father's singing. While Labhrás, the son, is a fine singer in his own right, he life's path has drawn him into the horseman's life, where he is acknowledged both for his hands-on skills and his understanding of the business of racing"

Is it the referred to father's LP on Gael Linn?

Sounds like an EP rather than LP - and my mind's eye begins to see something! BTW, I asked about the Irish version as a simple check on a name which I didn't recognise in this context.

Yeah - THIS THREAD confirms the EP designation and, to an extent, my instinct about the name!
