This is a song about the great Irish writer John McGahern, originally from Leitrim and later Cootehall. The song was recorded by “The Rising Suns”, a wonderful group of singers from the Cootehall / Leitrim area. The purpose of the recording is to aid The Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust. A donation to the Trust will greatly aid the work they do in the recovery of patients, such as the provision of an apartment adjacent to the Hospital which patients can stay in for a number of weeks following treatment for Leukaemia.
