Fitzgerald's Bar in Ballymagooly was packed to the rafters last week for a special CD launch of songs recorded by the well known singer and storyteller Dessie Fitzgerald who sadly passed away last February.

The renowned singer and bar owner guested on many of the Rakes of Mallow CDs and close pals Sean Donlon and Jimmy Bohan decided to honour the man by releasing a CD featuring him singing five of his all time favourite songs.

The songs featured on the CD produced at the Brian O'Reilly Studios in Fermoy include Beautiful City, Because I Love You So, Lay My Head Beneath A Rose, In Happy Moments and A Perfect Day.

The CD was officially presented to Dessie's son Pat and daughter-in-law Carmel by Mairead and Kit Bohan who represented Jimmy Bohan at the event. Other musicians present included Gerry O'Callaghan, John Linehan, Peter Burke and Johnny Bongos Horgan. Proceeds from the sale of the CD go to Mallow Hospital Comfort Fund.
