When was this recording made and released ?
And I’m fairly certain that track 17 should be "The West Coast Of CLARE".

Planxty—Live at the Olympia (1980) Pirate double cassette stopped by injunction, but quite a lot of copies were made and sold in UK. Recorded at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin in August 1980.


Andy Irvine seems to consider it worth listing it on his website as part of his discography & it was released & sold if only temporarily. I thought it worthy of inclusion.

If it needs to be removed then so be it.
I did not intend to break any rules or cause any problem.
