Ciarán Ó Fátharta - Amhráin is a collection of 31 of Ciarán Ó Fátharta'ssongs as well as one agallamh beirte. The songs are generally well known in Connemara and are performed by many local artists and groups including John Beag Ó Flatharta, Beairtle Ó Domhnaill, Cillín, Duirling and Ann Marie Nic Dhonncha, but this is the first time that the definitive versions of the songs have been published. Ó Fátharta writes in a particular style that came to the fore during the eighties when the Irish economy was in the doldrums, unemployment was high and the community was badly in need of a morale boost. The songs celebrate events of both local and national interest such as the sailing tradition in Connemara, boxing hero Seán Ó Mainnín and the state of the roads and are sung in a style particular to Connemara, influenced by both the country and western and the sean-nós styles.
