ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Liam was born in Ballymeeny, Dromore West Co. Sligo in 1941. He became interested in music listening to the local flute player Pat Kilawee from whom he also learned his first tunes. At the age of 12, he joined the Dromore West fife and drum band. In 1957, like many others, Liam set sail for London.
He was a founder member of the South London branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann with the late Ted McGowan, Ted's brother Tommy and Michael Bourke (father of Kevin). Liam also played with the well-known Glenside Céilí band.
He finished off his musical career in London playing with Christy Ryan from Limerick in the famous Shamrock Club and the Elephant and Castle. It was there he met his wife Bríd. They returned to live in An Cheathrú Rua, in Galway in 1970. It was in Connemare that he met Johnny Connolly, "that gentleman of music" as Liam calls him. They played together for years in many of the pubs and venues of the county.
"We played all over Connemara together, great place, great people. I hope you enjoy my efforts playing and singing. I would like to thank my family for helping me with this project. I love and thank them dearly. Slán go fóill & Up Sligo, Liam O'Hara"
