'Ard Tí Chuain' from Mary Dillon's album "North"

We reviewed Mary Dillon's new album North a little while ago.  She has released this track to give you a taster of what is in store for you.  'Ard Tí Chuain' is an ancient Irish traditional lament penned by Seán Mac Ambrois. Mac Ambrois' song tells how he left his native Glendun and settled in Ayrshire, Scotland, where he ultimately died pining for the hills of home, which he could still see on the western horizon. His song tells of his love for the 'cuckoo glen'; (Glendun) and of playing hurling at Christmas on the 'white strand' (the beach at Cushendun).

Formerly a vocalist with Irish folk band Déanta, Mary has been absent from the music scene for several years. This new album should satisfy long-time fans as well as catch the attention of those familiar with the music of her internationally-acclaimed sister Cara Dillon. Recorded at home in Dungiven, Co. Derry, the album features a selection of Mary's musical friends and is a co-production with album engineer and nephew Odhran Mullan. Source
