Singers Brid Dooley and Aine Sheridan, the latter also playing harp on the album, began working in 1997 on arrangements of traditional songs in Gaelic which had been collected by Mrs. Costelloe in the Tuam area of northeast Co. Galway and published in the 1918 collection "Amhrain Mhuighe Seola"--the collection was reprinted by Clo Iar-Chonnachta in 1990. Their work has resulted in a lovely album which takes its title from one of the songs selected. Musicians contributing their instrumental expertise to the beautiful arrangements include the great Clare concertina player Jacqueline McCarthy. Of the two instrumental tracks on the album, one is a recording of a gorgeous air entitled "Maigh Seola," composed by Ballinakill piper Ger Fahy.
