Some of you may have heard of Bridie Gallagher, I heard about her a few months ago on the radio. She is regarded as Ireland’s first international pop star and was born in Creeslough.
You can hear her sing Homes of Donegal and Cutting the Corn in Creeslough

A beautiful photo, Bill and I really enjoyed the videos. Have a nice Monday.ReplyDelete
That is a gorgeous sign. Just looking at it made me feel welcome.ReplyDelete
Wonder what the bike is doing there.ReplyDelete
Don't know about her, will check out the videos.ReplyDelete
I had never heard of her but listened to the song you gave us and she sounds good.ReplyDelete
... Bridie Gallagher is new to me, I need to check her out. What a wonderful sign.ReplyDelete
The town is obviously proud of her. I hope she doesn't forget her roots and move to Las Vegas or somewhere equally horrid.ReplyDelete
A very beautiful photo and sign!ReplyDelete
I haven't heard of her before.
Thank you for the links Bill.
Seems like a pleasant quiet place. Is that bike doing levitation?ReplyDelete
Great sign. I had not heard of her but enjoyed the video. Have a great day Bill.ReplyDelete
Hello, it is a pretty sign. It must be a small place with a population of 393? Enjoy your day, have a great new week ahead.ReplyDelete
A good sign!ReplyDelete
Interesting place for a bike.ReplyDelete
Nice of her to bring pride to the village and I loved the sign and its quite inviting!!ReplyDelete
What a nice tribute to her - she must have been thrilled!ReplyDelete
Never heard of her, but I'll look her up.ReplyDelete
I like the sign and the surrounding area.ReplyDelete
So it just goes to show that small town people can be famous ans successful. k.d. lang comes from a town of less than 1000 people.ReplyDelete
Her singing style is the sort that make many folks nostalgic for Ireland.ReplyDelete
That’s a nice town welcome sign and I wondered if the bike was always there, Bill, as it’s a nice touch.ReplyDelete
Creeslough looks like a very pretty town Bill, this is a lovely tribute to their star resident 💙ReplyDelete
What a great tribute to Birdie, and I liked those songs.ReplyDelete
