The following are discographical listings for labels which are either too small (there are many single release labels) or not complete enough to warrant a page of their own (yet). Many small labels proliferated in Ireland during the '80s as attention from the local branches of the major labels was often impossible for local acts to attract.

If you can fill in any gaps, please get in touch.

Avalon Records

A UK pop label which sometimes used Irish pressing plants - delisted.

ML 102 Maurice Lynch Showband - Let's Keep It Country LP [ca 1970]

Break Records

A label called 'Break Records' is too good a pun for some, so it's been used many times. Rather than try to separate them, I'm lumping them together here - the reader can sort them out!

BKS 001 Spud - Kitty / Scarlet 7" [1976] (PS)
SMASH 1 Resistors - EP For Jeanie 7" [1980] (PS)

Cabbage Records

CB 001 The Dixies - Cabbage Head / Oh Boy [1986?]
'Cabbage Head' is a cover of Stan Ridgway's 'Camouflage' issued in 1986 [(p) & (c) I.R.S. Records], so this Dixies single must date from 1986 or later.

The label owned by Waltons, the long established music shop and song publisher. The Waltons Programme was a long running radio show on RTE Radio.

Musikelt Records

At a guess, Musikelt was set up to license Celtic releases from abroad in Ireland, possibly financed by Keltia III. Distributed by Independent Music Sales, Dublin.

Quality Records

Launched in early 1970, Quality released a single by Johnny Regan & The Tumbleweeds and had plans to issue several albums (including a singalong session recorded live at the Old Shieling Hotel in Raheny, Dublin featuring the Rev. Michael Cleary, and a spoken word LP by Niall Toibin) which never came to pass, as far as I'm aware.

A charity single recorded at Slane Studios (SRS). Both sides credited to Rafiki (and published by Rafiki SRS Music).

I can find nothing about Foir Na Nog - or Fóir na n&Oactue;g, literally 'Save The Young' or Youth Aid.
