Thread Name: Grehan Sisters Recordings
Subject: RE: Grehan Sisters Recordings
think there's a poltergeist in my keyboard... was about to say that on 26 June 2014, a wonderful soldout concert was held in St Joseph's hall, Boyle, Co Roscommon, featuring the Grehan sisters Francie, Marie & Helen (formerly Bernie) who stormed the place in their own home town. Guest was Christy Moore who said that without the encouragement of the sisters, his life would have been totally different.
The concert was a tribute to John Reilly local traditional snger and frequenter of Mrs Grehan's pub in the town. The Grehans and Christy performed several of his songs, and moves are afoot to
set up a memorial plaque to John Reilly, and hopefully a release of some of the man's songs on CD sometime.
