Track list (all titles © 2010 O Nuallain - O Reilly)
1Thieves of time

Stolen time and money can be gotten back, but not the time it removes from creative, life-enhancing pursuits.
Joyce referred to his contemporary Ireland as the “sow that eats its farrow” ever vigilant to stop souls from flight into freedom.

Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
Enion Pelta violin

2. On Moytura plain

In the past decade, many bodies of early Celtic period Irishmen were found well-preserved in bogs; others were inadvertently exhumed as a mania of road-building progressed. In two cases, they had been ritually tortured and murdered. In this song, we wonder whether the new “others” for the Irish establishment are its diaspora

Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
Anne GoessViolin
Shay Black Vocals

3. Restless tonight

The "tossing and turning" at night;, the reasons why one leaves Ireland never quite goes away, even in Northern California

Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
John Kadyk Clarinet
Myra Joy Chaney Cello
4.Stigmata

Perhaps the first ever sung Gaelic vampire fantasy
Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
Enion Pelta violin

5.Somewhere time stands still

This is sung by the protagonist of our eponymous play; we hope its resonance is universal

Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
Anne GoessViolin
Myra Joy Chaney Cello

6..Glendalough
A simple song about love lost, but remembered forever in association with Irish beauty spots
Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
Enion Pelta violin


7 Violence over the land
The title references Ned Blackhawk's book of the same title about the genocide of the American first nations. By bizarre coincidence, the word for “people” in the Navajo language at Chelly Canyon and Ireland is the same (pronounced roughly “deena”).

Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
Enion Pelta violin

8.Take me away

Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion

9 Melleray

Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Ian Dogole percussion
Rebecca Kleinmann Flute
Myra Joy Chaney Cello
Shay Black Vocals

10 Times are it's hard
The search for a place to be. From West Clare, the main visible Kerry mountain range are called the “Brandons”
Melanie O'Reilly vocals
Sean O Nuallain guitar
Enion Pelta violin

11 Monetize this!
Increasingly, there is pressure to "monetize the “culture”. .We as artists can hardly wait. OK, we just won't wait.

(Chatham house rules = " none of our business")

Ian Dogole percussion
Enion Pelta violin
