Hi All

Sad to be the bearer of this sad news but Patrick Galvin, the Irish playwright, writer and poet, has died at the age of 83, at his home in Cork.

I'll always remember him as the composer of my personal favourite song 'Where, Oh Where, is our James Connolly?'. When I sing this song at the annual Labour Party and SIPTU commeration of James Connolly at Arbour Hill Cemetery next Sunday, I will dedicate the performance to Patrick Galvin's memory.

Fergus

Patrick Galvin's were among the first recordings of Irish traditional song that I heard, when I was about 18. They included 'The Fair of Turloughmore' and 'Dunlavin Green'. His book, Irish songs of Resistance, which was published, first I think by WMA, and later by Oak in America, was, although the historical commentary lacked nuance and sometimes accuracy, was one of the first books I came across that made any attempt to put songs in any sort of context. Traditional song is in his debt.

he had a quirkey sense of humour. I'm minding my grandson Jeó for a couple of days so I won't get to Cork. I left it too late to go down to see him (I've being threatening to visit him since Frank Harte died).

His recordings introduced me to Irish music back in the early 50's. He was a clear influence on the Clancy's, whose "Irish Songs of Rebellion"
clearly echoed Galvin's earlier record--same title, almost identical content, very similar artwork.

The Kanawha County library had the three Stinson LPs of Irish Rebel Songs - I used to check at least one of them out once a month to learn the songs. A great resource. Thank you, Patrick - May you rest in peace.
