Claddagh Records was founded in Dublin in 1959 by Garech Browne. The first album it produced was the classic Rí na bPíobairí (King of the Pipers) by Leo Rowsome. The second Claddagh album was The Chieftains, the very first recording of the now world-famous traditional group. Claddagh went on to make many more fine albums of the Chieftains.To visit Claddagh Records on your holiday in Dublin, and find out what else Dublin has to offer, use our Dublin online travel planner .
During the next number of years Claddagh Records published many of the best traditional artists of the time. It was a revolutionary label also in the sense that it set out to present the leading literary figures in Ireland. Poets such as Patrick Kavanagh, Austin Clarke, John Montague and Seamus Heaney have made records for Claddagh, and the label has also recorded major Scottish poets such as Hugh Mac Diarmid, Sorley MacLean and George MacKay Browne.
Claddagh RecordsToday, Claddagh continues to release the best traditional music in Ireland. Among the musicians who have recorded on Claddagh recently are Peter O’Loughlin and Ronan Browne on fiddle and pipes, Harry Bradley on flute and Brian Rooney on fiddle. The work continues and the company hopes to make many more timeless and enduring recordings.

テンプル・バー地区にある元祖テンプル・バーのすぐ近くにあります。ドライブでアイルランドを廻っている間に、ケルト音楽を聞いて、何か良いものはないかと訪ねてみました。 思っていたよりＣＤが豊富です。イメージを聞かれたので、ジョン・デンバーと答えたのですが、ピンとくるものが無かったので諦めました。親切で良いお店です。 more »It is right next to the original Temple Bar in the Temple Bar district. While I was driving Ireland, I heard Celtic music and asked him if there was anything good. CD is more abundant than I thought. Because I was asked the image, I replied to John Denver, but I gave up because there was no pin. It is a kind and good shop.
