Mary Coughlan - Live In Galway album FLAC
Recorded in her native Galway in 1995, this live date was originally released in Europe a year prior to Coughlan's 1997 American debut, After the Fall; the Irish torch singer is in fine form throughout, her voice resonating with real pain and heartbreak on tracks like "Sweet Victim" and "Blue Surrender. The highlight is the devastating "Magdalen Laundry," based on a true story detailing the plight of a number of unwed mothers sent into exile by the Catholic Church decades ago. Track Listing.

Mary Coughlan was born in County Galway, Ireland (her father was a soldier from County Donegal). She was the eldest of five and had endured a very erratic youth. She left convent school and started drinking alcohol and taking drugs at just 15. At this age she spent time in a mental hospital. After time in hospital and a belated graduation, Coughlan decided to leave home. In the mid-1970s, she moved to London, UK, where she married Fintan Coughlan and had three children. However, in 1981, she left her husband and took custody of her children . Coughlan released her first live album, Live in Galway, and released another studio album in 1997, After the Fall, which became her American debut.
