Welcome to the Captain Francis O’Neill memorial website Tralibane, Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland

Tunes and songs picked up from his parents and visiting musicians at the family home in West Cork that were to form the basis of one of the most remarkable collections of Irish music, published in the early years of the last century.
The Music of Ireland (1903), was compiled and edited in Chicago by O’Neill (1848-1936).

The Captain Francis O’Neill Memorial Co. want to extend their deepest sympathy to the Foley Family on the death of Greta. And also to sympathise with her sisters Catherine and Cecilia who are both directors of the Captain F. O’Neill Co.
Greta was a great supporter of the O’Neill Co. she was instrumental in the plan of having a Commemorative Brick in memory of Captain Francis O’Neill on a Wall at the Monument in Tralibane.
