Leitir Ceanainn: Anne Nicholls
Inspired by reading the local history of her home town, "Leitir Ceanainn" is a new song written and performed by schoolteacher Anne Nicholls about Letterkenny in County Donegal. Accompanied by Sinead Gibson and Aisling Cheevers, the song covers epic battles on the River Swilly, Tenant Rights meetings, the development of the Port, Railway and Hiring Fairs and of course the growth of the town over its 400 year history.
