In reply to: Stephen Bernas 's message, "The Corrib Folk" on 00:46:16 12/03/03 Wed


The Corrib Folk members full names were as follows.
Barry Nelson: Plays mandolin, tenor banjo and acoustic guitar
Liam Barr: Plays bodhran and guitar, with vocals
Jim Sheridan: Plays "G" banjo, with vocals
Stevie Regan: Play tin whistle, flute, mandolin and bass guitar
Sean O'Neill: Plays guitar and is lead vocalist.

After doing their first 2 albums The Corrib folk and Sing Irishmen sing they settled in the USA. In 1981 Jim and Barry regrouped with Tony Kellegher from Tralee Co.Kerry and recorded an album At The Crossroads. Sean O'Neill returned to Belfast where he sang with The Tara Folk there from 1981 to 1988 and made 2 albums with them Belfast City by The Laggan side and Folk Ballads of Ireland. Stevie I was told had a nervous breakdown but I cant confirm that and I know nothing about Liam Barr. Sean may still be in Belfast. Thats all I know Im afraid but the 2 original Corrib Folk lps are now avaialbel on a double Cd issued by Outlet Records in Belfast.

Hope this is of help
John O'Regan
