The Gathering

Recorded ub 1977 , Released in 1981 (Greenhays, GR 705)

Donal Lunny, Paul Brady, Andy Irvine, Matt Molloy, Tommy Potts, Triona Ni Dhomnaill, & Peter Browne.

Quote from Andy Irvine’s website:
"This was recorded in 1977 as a favour for Diane Meek (née Hamilton) who was something of a patron of traditional music in Dublin at the time. She formed a small record company called ”Srutháin” that she intended to release this album on but for some reason didn’t get round to it till she was back in the States some years later. The credits as to who played what are erroneous in the sleeve notes. Andy sings ”There’s sure to be a row” with Paul Brady and ”The Mall of Lismore;; with Triona Ni Dhomhnaill. He also plays Mandolin and Harmonica on Paul Brady’s ”Heather on the Moor” "
