Jimmy was born and lived in the Isle of Doagh. He had a wonderful 'unpolluted' and individul style of singing with a vast repertoire of songs. All of the recordings in the Song Project were made when Jimmy was in his late seventies and early eighties and we are left to wonder what an experience it would have been to have heard him in his prime, and indeed what songs he had forgotton and were never recorded. He had songs ranging from the local to the big Child ballads and always sung with a wonderful music in his voice. He often sang in unison with his long time friend and singing partner  Denis McDaid
