It’s great to see this album of Eithne’s out. I look forward to hearing all the offerings from this beautiful, treasured, unique and original Irish voice.
The album is a solo one that she was working on before she passed away, and features mostly her own compositions in Gaelic and English.
As Eithne was a cousin of my mum’s, I was introduced to her singing, and her songs at a young age. My favourite track is an ‘The Emigrants Farewell’, which she recorded with La Lugh. There is something otherworldly, delicate and engaging about Eithne’s delivery of any song.
The Emigrant’s Farewell.
Her family have set up a website so it’s easier to explore all the beautiful music she made while she was alive.
