Songbirds - Bridie Gallagher

In part 3 of Songbirds the First Ladies of Irish Song, the focus is on Bridie Gallagher, the Girl from Donegal, who was the darling of the dance halls and travelled the world to play for the Irish wherever they were based.  

Bridie died in January 2012.

It was such a pleasure for me to meet Bridie in her home back in 2005
I hope you're enjoying the series so far - just a couple more to go and then they're here for as long as they're needed.  
Do drop me a line and let me know what you think...

This blog is Day 30 of my 30 day blog challenge


  1. This was one of the most wonderful series I have seen Fil especially because I had the honour of meeting and playing with Ruby Murray, Bridie Gallagher and Margaret Barry. You have done us all a great service by these programmes. We shall never see the like of these special ladies again. Thank you so much. Terry.

    1. Aw thank you Terry. They were very special women.
