Neil McCurdy and Roise na hAmhran

This exquisite fine art print captures the essence of Neil McCurdy and Roise na hAmhran (Rosie of the Songs). Neil McCurdy, a skilled stonemason employed by the Commissioner of Irish Lights, dedicated his craftsmanship to various lighthouses, including the one on Aranmore Island. It was there that he crossed paths with Roise na hAmhran, affectionately known as Rosie of the Songs.


In a beautiful exchange of tradition, Neil imparted two Rathlin songs to Rosie, preserving them in their authentic style. These timeless tunes, 'Donal agus Morag' and 'Mo Choill,' eventually found their way to the wider audience through the renowned Donegal folk and traditional group, Altan. The melodies were immortalized on the album "Harvest Storm" (1992), echoing the enduring connection between Neil McCurdy, Rosie of the Songs, and the rich musical heritage of Ireland.
