20th June 2009

Oíche dhátheangach at the Boyle Singers on Saturday night, with several singers ag rá amhráin as Gaeilge: Eileanór a rún, Liostáil mé le Sáirsint, Óró mo churachín agus an Seanduine dóite. So much so, that a storyteller was moved to recite a macaronic recitation!

Dár ndóigh, bhí neart béarla ann freisin, with Helen and Breege kicking off the night in great style, both singing their own compositions - and a third singer, with an unplanned display of creativity, sang a unique version of the Newry Highwayman, as the actual lyrics evaded her on the night. SHE shall go unnamed. A wide selection of songs and singers including Tony, Clare, Eugene, Noreen, Frank, Marian, Clíona. Paul made his debut by joining in with gusto on that old favourite, Happy Birthday! Pádraig, Frances and Teresa recited and told stories.

And the songs? Banks of the Bann, Jimmy Murphy, Rosie Stewart's Jug of Punch, Luke Manner, Liverpool lullaby, Mrs McGrath, Maid of Magherally, Maggie, Westlin' Winds, In Bodenstown Churchyard, the Chapel gates at Cooraclare and several more.

The Shannonside Northern Sound Supporting the Arts award was on display on the night.

Go dtí an t-am céanna an mhí seo chugainn, beirigí bua agus bainigí taitneamh as an tSamhraidh - because, for the record - the weather is GORGEOUS at the moment.
