Tom Lenihan has a very extensive repertoire of traditional songs in English, and has also contributed a great deal of other valuable material to the Department of Irish Folklore. A record of his singing, entitled Paddy's Panacea was issued on the Topic label in 1978. Tom Munnelly works as a full-time collector with the Department and his collections of thousands of Irish traditional songs in English is the largest of its kind. He is based in Co. Clare, where he now does most of his collecting, and he has worked extensively with both Tom Lenihan and Junior Crehan. Junior Crehan is probably best known for his fine fiddle-playing, but he is also a skilled storyteller and source of general lore. Included in his repertoire of stories are a number of Fenian tales told in English - a comparatively rare find in the storytelling tradition.
