I have a new website as of late 2012. The Nine Winds, at terrymcgarry.com, has updated links, current b(ibl)iographical info, exclusive fiction, an active blog, and all kinds of new content, with most of the content here gradually making its way over there as well.

Tunes and tune software:

The TuneWeb

Henrik Norbeck's ABC Tunes, a downloadable archive

The ABC Homepage: The ABC system of musical notation is awesomely useful for collecting and sharing tunes through the Internet. Download shareware to render ABC in staff notation (or play it through your computer's speakers), download some of the tune archives people have put on the Web, and you have instant access to hundreds of tunes. This is too damn cool.

The Irish Times, Ireland's major daily newspaper. This site hits you with about forty cookie grenades, but it's a great resource.

The Irish Echo

The Irish Voice

The Galway Advertiser. I can't believe this is online. Getting this one hot off the presses--knowing where it was going to be dropped off first when it came out--was a big deal in Galway when I lived there, and a lot of our lives depended on being the first to answer an ad.

Film, TV, Radio:

Celtic Sounds on WFUV in New York City and environs. A Thousand Welcomes is one of the best traditional-Irish-music shows, if not the best, period.

RTE Online Audio Files. This is really great--streaming audio of radio from Ireland. The Late Session is great--traditional music and interviews.
