Sleeve Notes

This album, Songs For Ireland, is a collection of some old songs and some new songs. They all tell a good story and each one has a special meaning to me. I hope you like them.

Special thanks to Gus Kennedy for his help in the arrangements and to Sanford Markley, without his help I never would have finished this album.
Dedicated to my son, Rory Derrig Maguire, born 2/27/87.
