    The classic album by Mick Moloney, Robbie O’Connell, and Jimmy Keane, originally recorded in Springhouse, Pennsylvania, in 1986, has been remastered by Jimmy Keane and re-released in January 2022.
    Kilkelly tells the story of immigration through a series of letters sent from a father in Kilkelly, Mayo, to his son in America spanning 1860 to 1892. The album concludes with The Green Fields of America, a 22-minute operetta which links the themes of emigration, settlement, cultural adaptation, and continuity through 150 years of music and song drawn from the broadsides, vaudeville, music hall, cinema, radio and the 78 rpm recording industry.
