Larry Cunningham &
The Country
Blue Boys

When Larry Cunningham left The Mighty Avons, he hired members of the Edenderry-based showband, The Fairways as his new backing band and changed the name to The Blue Boys. The word 'Country' was added later when a legal challenge was initiated by Jim Reeves' widow as Reeves' backing-band was named The Blue Boys. The Fairways name went to the Tom Kelly Sound in Ballina, Co. Mayo along with singer Gary Street.
