Terence O’Flaherty’s mother, aunts and uncles were orphans, the girls attending the Convent of Mercy Orphanage in Ennis. Terence has written this poignant song in their memory accompanied by the evocative use of photographs - some from the Michael John Glynne Collection on Clare County Library’s website. Terence O’Flaherty was born in Ennistymon and moved to England in the early 1970s for work. Terence sang and played in Gus O’Connor’s pub in Doolin and used to sing with Gerry Egan in Murt McMahon’s pub in Ennistymon. He has played all over England in traditional Irish bands and also in Europe and America. He has released two albums in recent years - Crosscurrents in Ireland and Ghosts in England and is about to release two more albums. Terence is now a building contractor in London.
