About Robert Gogan

Robert Gogan was born in Dublin and through his formative years enjoyed listening to the music of such artists as The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners, Count John McCormack and indeed almost anybody singing Irish songs. He gradually took a greater interest in music and studied in the College of Music for several years. He now plays the banjo, guitar, bodhran and keyboards and frequently performs at venues throughout County Mayo, where he now lives with his wife, Anne Realising that Irish ballads were receiving less and less exposure in Ireland, Gogan feared that these fine songs - once the lifeblood of Irish people at home and abroad - might be heading for extinction. With this in mind he decided to produce a series of Irish ballad books in a very 'user-friendly' format and in attractive full colour presentations. He produced four volumes in the 1990's - 130 Great Irish BalladsA", 50 Great Irish Love SongsA", 50 Great Irish Fighting SongsA" and 50 Great Irish Drinking SongsA". He is currently working on other music projects with a view to cultivating renewed interest in Irish ballads and traditional music, both at home and abroad.
