Claddagh Records (Ceirníní Cladaigh in Irish) produced some very strong record sleeves for Irish Traditional recordings in the seventies and eighties. Unfortunately the design credits are limited and tend to only name the photographer or artist whose work is incorporated into the cover but not the designer, the Tommy Potts being an execption in these examples. And yes, the music is every bit as good as the artwork.
