Speech [song introduction] ; Clonmany For Me, song ; Speech [Information provided by AOH: Jimmy sings a tongue-in-cheeky song, 'Clonmany for Me', written by Pat Lynch, Carndonagh. Jimmy said that Pat also wrote 'The Lighthouse Down at Bunagee' - and the funny part of it all was that there's no lighthouse at Bunagee - 'The Banks of the Shannon'. Pat was a comedian, Jimmy said. He did recitations like 'An Angel Grew Tired of Heaven'. Pat and Neil Kearney were contemporaries of Harry Lauder and the pair met him one time. Harry wanted them to travel with him on his world tour, he thought they were so good] / Jimmy Clingan, speech in English, singing in English; Aidan O’Hara, speech in English

Donated by Aidan O'Hara
Information provided by Aidan O'Hara:
'Jimmy was somewhat reluctant to sing th'oul songs and would have gladly sung me 'Three little maids from school are we' or some other piece from Gilbert and Sullivan. But by patient coaxing I got him to sing a few songs his father sang.'
