Molly Ban Lyrics

Molly Ban Lyrics

Track Five on ‘Ushers Island’ is Andy Irvine’s beautiful rendition of ‘Molly Ban’. This is not the version by the Dubliners, Alison Krauss - nor any of the other written versions I have tracked down on the net. Can anyone refer me to a written copy of the Andy Irvin / Ushers Island version?

Re: Molly Ban Lyrics

Hi Steve. Andy got the version he sings from John O’Connell and it is on John’s album "The Maid From Ballingarry & Other songs From the Muscrai Tradition" (rec c1960) Éigse Dhiarmuidín ED001, 2004. The CD booklet (according to http://celticgrooves.homestead.com/) has full lyrics. I’m afraid I don’t have the CD but someone else probably has. Cheers. Dave
