Dan Donovan was recorded in his home in Turner’s Cross and he initially related a funny story about Kruger Kavanagh’s invitation to Aloys Fleischmann to sing one night in Ballyferriter. Dan has many happy memories of Aloys Fleischmann during his college days, and discusses the great work done by Aloys and Joan Denise Moriarty in major productions with the Cork Orchestral Society. These productions amounted to an enormous cultural expansion in the city, which could not have come about without the voluntary approach to the work. Dan worked as compere for many years at the Cork Choral Festival, which is a major and very important cultural event annually.
