Under the name Liam O'Connor, his "The Hawk and the Crow" is in Peter Kennedy's "Folksongs of Britain and Ireland" (Song 295). The recording was made in 1953 by P Kennedy and Seán O'Boyle but it's not in the BBC series. I know of nothing else.

Hmmmm.... Thought the name sounded familiar. He published an autobiography (in Irish) in 1986 called "Olta le Ceolta" (Drunk on Music, essentially). Must check if he mentions that recording.

Regards

I didn't think it worth mentioning that, with Derek Bell he published a book with the approximate title Traditional Songs of the North of Ireland; an idiosyncratic volume. However, with hindsight I should have cited it.

Thanks all. I actually have one of the "Folksongs of Britain and Ireland" albums (though not that one), but, because of questionable collecting/crediting practices of the late Mr. Kennedy (first pointed out in this forum, i believe) i have been reluctant to search for the others.

John, idiosyncratic or not, i think Traditional Songs of the North of Ireland is a nice volume with some very interesting tunes. Do you agree? If not, what are the shortcomings. Thanks very much.

FWIW, in his autobiography, O'Connor briefly mentions meeting Kennedy and O'Boyle in August 1953. He describes visiting the Tunney household and also meeting fiddler John Doherty.

When I say, idiosyncratic, I;m referring to Ó Chonchubhair's practice of putting notes between each verse in some of the songs, to his selection of songs that are not from Ulster and to the disproportionate inclusion of Irish language over English language songs. Also, most of those that are in English are local to Co Tyrone or were made by Tyrone song makers.
