Beal Feirste is the Gaelic name for Belfast. The label released a number of pro Republican singles during
1973-74, in the style of the Wolfe Tones, most notably by The Freemen, who also released an
LP 'The Lark in the Morning' on Emerald Gem in 1971 (GES 1063).
On the first pressing of the first single (PDF 001) the label name is misspelled Beil Feirste Records. On subsequent pressings of PDF001 and on subsequent releases, the spelling is correct: Beal Feirste.
I assume it's the same label given the artists involved and the timeline, but this assumption may be incorrect. It is certainly a different label to Ceol Beal Feirste Records.
