O'Brien the Blacksmith
Another song from the pen of Robbie McMahon. I first heard him sing it at a County Clare Fleadh Cheoil over fifty years ago, and it has stayed with me down through the years. Robbie sang it again for me the afternoon that I visited his home in 2009, and I was delighted to capture it on disc. Thanks again, my friend, for the joy that you have given to all of us who knew you and who loved your expressive interpretations of all those lovely songs.
