Lovely Leitrim



The ballad ‘Lovely Leitrim’ has become known as the county song of Leitrim. The song was written in America by Philip Fitzpatrick from Aughavas who had emigrated there in the early 1930’s. The nostalgic song recounts a dream of returning to Leitrim and travelling to all the places he fondly remembered again.
Larry Cunningham had a number one hit in the Irish charts with ‘Lovely Leitrim’ in 1965.
