‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

Im doing a wee bit of work on the life and songs of Eithne.Can anybody point me in the right direction to learn more about her and her music.

Re: ‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

I really want links to La Lugh or where to buy CD’s

, I think thats what you called the group along with her husband Gerrry O Connor back in the 90’s

Re: ‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

Also, you can buy the CDs from Gerry O Connor here: http://gerryoconnor.net/albums.html

You might also want to look into her sister, singer Padraigin Ni Uallacháin

Re: ‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

One of my favourite singers. Precious few clips to be found online unfortunately… Best to start with the eponymously titled Lá Lugh cd, and especially her beautiful rendition of Oícha fá Fhéil’ Bríde. Good luck.

“Cosa Gan Bhroga”

Ditto that, a favourite…

“Cosa Gan Bhroga”

It seems that someone has managed a zip of this lovely recording, which has too long been unavailable… May it soon be available in a not so compressed form…

Re: ‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

I’ll have to see if I can dig out the old house recordings I have that include Eithne. I’d lost track and I hadn’t known until this thread of her passing… Lovely people, all, who also happened to be gifted musically as well… Is there an obituary anywhere that can inform me a little bit better on this?

Re: ‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

Thanks all she was a truly gifted and talented lady, sadly missed… R I P

Re: ‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

Thanks for the excellent seasoning, these links, for my day, and for the news, as sad and unexpected as it was…

Re: ‘Eithne Ni Uallachain’

A Chairde,

Bilingua, Eithne’s first solo album, is a blend of newly composed and traditional songs recorded in Homestead Studios, County Antrim between 1997 and 1999. Recorded over 15 years ago, this contemporary album is a clear reflection of the creative course on which Eithne’s song writing and composition was heading before her untimely death in May 1999. It celebrates the life and legacy of an inspirational singer and composer who left us all too soon.
