Tony Rees John Reilly, traveller singer. (47) RE: John Reilly, traveller singer. 07 Nov 18

Further to the above post... false alarm, these two are by a different John Reilly (which explains the otherwise erroneous-looking quoted recording date of 1971). I have just been looking at a Tom Munnelly article from 1975 ("The Singing Tradition of Irish Travellers") where "False Lankum" is transcribed with the source "Sung by John Reilly, 24, a distant relation to the previous John Reilly, Coothall, Co. Roscommon (M.15/A/1), 26.10.71." So there we go.

Regards - Tony
