McBreen’s Heifer Videos

McBreen’s Heifer is one the funiest Irish songs ever written but it has been a little overlooked in recent years.

Lyrics and chords
Percy French songwriter

The Irish tenor Brendan O’Dowda recorded this splendid version as part of a documentary for Irish television on the life and works of Percy French.

Take a look. The humour is so clever it’s sublime. McBreen’s Heifer begins at 41minutes 40sceonds.

Here’s Willie Brady with McBreen’s Heifer.
