An Evening with Louise & Norman Morrissey

Louise Morrissey has long been regarded by both folk and country music enthusiasts as one of our vocal treasures. She began her music career together with her brothers as part of the highly acclaimed folk group The Morrisseys . From the mid 70’s through to the late 80’s The Morrisseys enjoyed national and international success. Louise has also enjoyed a stellar solo career and returns to Macroom after a powerful sell out performance last year.

Joining Louise on the night will be her brother Norman, and together they will share with their audience many memories, stories and songs. This special concert at Riverside Park Hotel will be the perfect pick me up after the busy festive period.

Tickets €20 available online at brierygap.ie or by calling 026 41917.

Down by the Tanyard Side

I am a rambling hero
And by love I am ensnared,
Near to the town of Millstreet,
There dwells a comely maid,
She’s fairer than fair Erin,
And she’s free from earthly pride.
This comely maid’s dwelling place
Is down by the Tanyard side.

For seven long years we walked together
Untill we did agree
But for her parents
Tis married we would be.
To me they proved unkind
Which causes me to cross the tide
And to leave my love behind
Down by the tanyard Side.
