Here is a rare opportunity to hear Patrick Galvin, the famous playwright, author, singer and song collector from Cork city singing his own composition "James Connolly". This recording was made at a private party in New York City in 1981. Many thanks to Terrence Winch who made this priceless recording available. Patrick Galvin was born in Cork in 1927 or 1929, depending on which biography you believe. He has had an amazing life rising from the obscurity of the Cork slums of the 1920s to becoming one of Ireland's most lauded writers and singers with many and varied adventures along the way. An enemy of Revisionism, Patrick Galvins songs express a pride in the Irish struggle for freedom, and a faith in that honourable class, The People of No Property.
