Ogham was a Dublin-based folk label, distributed by CBS Ireland.
Ogham seems to have been related to Blackbird Records, though I'm not exactly sure what the relationship was - shared management? The two labels certainly appear to have shared catalogue numbers. The Makem & Clancy releases below are Blackbirds; the De Danann and Clannad releases are Oghams. Maura O'Connell releases are shared between the two.
