Joe Lacky Gallagher - The Leitrim Cake
"Music Bright and Undiminished"
The music of Joe's life could be described as The Leitrim Cake: in it the salty-sweet taste of home, timeless, universal, crusted on the hearth of vanished fires; cure for deep hunger; a taste that lingers,the best of youth and consolation of age.
