THE MOUNTAIN STREAMS she learned from her aunt, Mary Gallagher in Tower; THE CROPPY BOY from Frank Gallagher of Crannog, "a big fine-looking man with a sweet voice" (She heard many other versions in the locality but thought this had the nicest air); MURLOUGH MARY came from her mother, Mary Meehan, and her grandfather Meehan on the Donegal-Fermanagh border.

TUNNEY, Paddy - Co Fermanagh\ Singer\ 1952 - Son of Brigid, sister of Annie Lunney & Maureen Melly, nephew of Michael Gallagher - was born in Glasgow in 1921. He worked as a forester, a road-roller flagman and as a cobbler. He spent 4½ years in prison in Belfast for his youthful idealistic political activities for the Irish Republican Army, smuggling explosives over the Fermanagh-Donegal border. It was in prison that he studied Irish history, began to write poetry and to sing his own family songs. On release he trained at University College, Dublin, as a health inspector, married, and worked at Letterkenny until his retirement in 1989. He has made a number of commercial records and become well-known as a storyteller. He has recently had a book of poems published by the Co Donegal Public Library. Here is Paddy's own memory of how he first became interested in his family tradition - "My mother was a fine traditional singer. She taught me to lilt and to sing. Her father, Michael Gallagher, used to take me on his knee and sing to me. He knew both languages, Irish and English, and had a fine repertoire of folk-tales and ballads. He could make a good drop of the good old mountain dew, and was well-known to all the travelling journeymen, tinsmiths, tailors, cobblers, weavers and the like, who used to visit the locality in his young days. My father, Patrick Tunney, was a fine reel dancer, so that lilting, fiddling and melodeon-playing filled my most impressionable years" - photo by PK 0134 with aunt Annie Meehan & Sean O Boyle, "Fiddler's Stone", crossroads dance, waterfall Lough Erne 0163-9 -- rec by PK, Belleek 19/7/52: RPL 18538 "Lough Erne's Shore" - RPL 18539 "Mountain Streams"/ "Johnny Lovely Johnny"/ Lilting (mouth music): Reel: Frieze Breeches - rec by PK 19/7/52: RPL 22326: "The Royal Blackbird" - RPL LP 29436-7 rec 1965 (not in Lib) - songs & liltings rec by Sean O Boyle 18958: 7"RTR-0565 - rec by PK, London 14/10/58 RTR-0556-0561 - CAEDMON vol 1 #4: RTR-0557 "When a man's in love" - FTX-013 Greenwood Laddie - FTX-164 solo album - FTX-516 Soldier & Sailor (with Joe) - FTX-518 Prince Charlie Stuart (his mother Brigid sings last part) - TOPIC 12-T-139 1965 "Wild Birds Nest" rec by Bill Leader, Camden Town 1965/ 12-T- 153 1966 "The Irish Edge"/ 12-TS-264 1975 "The Mountain Streams/ 12-TS-289 1976 "The Flowery Vale" (unacc album)/ TOPIC TSCD-651 1998 "Courtship" "Rocking the Cradle" & "When a man's in love"/ TSCD-652 "Sea" "Lowlands of Holland"/ TSCD-653 "Tragic Ballads" "What put the blood?/" (Edward) & "Lady Margaret"(Sweet William's Ghost)/ TSCD-654 "Emigration" "The Green Fields of Canada" & "Craigie Hill"/ TSCD-655 "Rural" "The Lark in the Morning"/ TSCD-656 "Lovers false & true" "The Month of January"(The Forsaken Mother) & "The Mountain Streams"/ TSCD-660 "Amorous Encounters" "The Old Petticoat" & "Blackwaterside"/ TSCD-662 "Sailors" "Captain Coulson"/ TSCD-663 "Drink": "The Cow that drank the poteen" (Paddy Shinehan's Cow)/ TSCD-665 "Love &Courtship" "Johnny lovely Johnny" "Wearing of the Britches" & "Bonny Tavern Green" (The Irish Girl)/ TOPIC TSCD-670 "Farmwork": "The Wee Weaver"
