‘The Rose of Allendale’ is the opening track from Helena’s debut album Ceol.
A Note from Helena – “‘Ceol’, meaning ‘Music’ in the Irish language, is a collection of my favourite Irish songs, from ‘The Spinning Wheel’, one of the first songs I learned, to ‘If I Were a Blackbird’, that my grandfather used to sing during family gatherings. I hope that you enjoy listening.”
