The Flower of Magherally

On our first CD we recorded a version of the lovely northern Irish song The Maid of Culmore. We return to the same area this time to offer our rendition of The Flower of Magherally. We first heard this beautiful expression of love across the class divide from the singing of Cathal McConnell in The Boys of the Lough but An Oige has also done a great version. The pathos and drama of the song came alive for us with the DADGAD tuning for guitar, and mandolin arrangement.
