GREETINGS & Leabhar na hAiseirghe

Posted by Bea Cloke on Monday Jun 6, 2016 Under Composition, Leabhar na hAiseirghe, Music

Leabhar na hAiséirghe (Book of the Resurrection) is an astonishing artefact, housed in the National Museum of Ireland (Collins Barracks in Dublin). Its creator, Art O’Murnaghan, is recognised as the greatest Artist-Scribe of 20th Century Ireland.

The recent RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta programme Art Ó Mornacháin agus Leabhar na hAiséirghe previews the first new music you have heard from his great-grandson in some time: a glimpse at Daniel’s soon to be unveiled ‘supergroup’: GREETINGS. Their “handsinmyhead” is described as an intoxication in 3 parts. This excerpt (Part 3) features Gerry Leonard  on electric guitar and Daniel on 12 string acoustic.

Recorded at Kettle Watch minor, Pussycat Row, and The Surgery
Produced by DF
Engineared by Paddy Hunt

The Power of the Rising...

The Proclaiming a Republic: the 1916 Rising exhibition at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks, contains a section dedicated to Art Ó Murnaghan and his creation of Leabhar na hAiséirghe / Book of the Resurrection.
