Thread Name: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Subject: John Reilly, traveller singer.
Spent a great day yesterday at the South Roscommon Singers Festival in Knockcroghery in the Irish midlands. Highlight was a talk on John Reilly, the traveller singer who spent his last years in Boyle, Co. Roscommon, not far away. Gerry O'Daly did the talking with the excellent Helen Grehan (of Grehan Sisters fame) illustrating with some beautiful singing of Jacko's songs.
