Larry Cunningham &
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.
