GUEST,Louise Irish girl singers from 1950s and 1960s: (49) RE: Irish girl singers from 1950s and 1960s: 04 Jun 09


In answer to Martin's last query the answer on Sheelagh Warde is very easy for me. Yes I remember her well and still am privileged to know her to this day. Sheelagh is my mum!

I first saw her on tv as a very small child when I was lifted out of bed to watch mummy sing in The Melody Lingers On series when she sang "Oh play to me gypsy"
I couldn't understand as I got older how I knew that the dress my mum wore on the tv was green since it was only black and white in those days.
I later figured it out. I knew the emerald dress from seeing it hanging with Mum's props on the wardrobe in her bedroom.
Mum sang all over Ireland and I believe in England too. She was pregnant with me when she went to North America to sing there.

Hope this adds to the stories!
