    Bridie Gallagher

    The Girl from Donegal

    Known as ‘the Girl from Donegal’, Bridie Gallagher was Ireland’s first truly international pop star. Over a fifty-year career she sang at sell-out concerts from small halls across Ireland to leading venues such as the London Palladium, Royal Albert Hall, the Lincoln Centre in New York and the Sydney Opera House. She brought glamour to show business in Ireland, and gave new life to forgotten Irish ballads. Her rise to fame began in the mid-1950s and was marked by enormous crowds wherever she appeared, as she won the hearts of legions of fans loyal ever since. But as well as phenomenal success, her life was marked by tragedy and loss.

    This biography by her son, Jim Livingstone, draws upon Bridie’s own handwritten memoir, interviews with friends, fans and colleagues, and Jim’s own personal insights, having worked closely with her as manager and musical director for twenty-five years. This is the story of a young, beautiful and talented girl from humble beginnings in Donegal who established a career in show business that was to endure for half a century.

    Our client commissioned Fairways Design to design an eye-catching cover for this title.

    How we helped

    Biography Book Cover Design

    I am absolutely thrilled with the book and I was very emotional when I held it in my hand for the first time. As you might imagine it has been a proverbial labour of love for me (and my family) over this past 3 years. I knew when we met in Cork earlier this year that The Collins Press and Fairways Design would do the best job. I never imagined just how good that would be. So thank you sincerely, both on my behalf and Bridie’s (I can picture her screaming with delight and pride).
    Now all we have to do is make sure lots and lots of people love it half as much as I do. I don’t for one second underestimate how difficult book selling can be. But The Collins Press and Fairways Design have certainly made sure that an extremely attractive book has been produced and I have no doubt that no will question the quality of the product, even if they are silly enough to not buy it!! Again thank you and congratulations on a job extremely well done. It is fabulous!
