GUEST,Peter Laban Martin Carthy irish ancestor (9) RE: Martin Carthy irish ancestor 04 Jun 19

There is a little write up and photo in O'Neill's book (Minstrels and musicians.

A photographic image of McCarthy was used for a postcard at the time, it's quite rare although a relative of his in the US had a batch reprinted some fifteen-ish years ago.

The whole McCarthy festival that brought Carthy to Ballybunion was strongly driven by the minister who wanted some activity in the constituency. That said, he seemed genuinely interested and knowledgeable at the time. Na Piobairi Uilleann held their annual tionol in Listowel at the time, piperss went to Ballybunion on the sunday morning to pay tribute to Tom McCarthy's memory.
