Independent Irish label: Cuchulainn Records Had addresses in both Derry and Dublin; its head office does however appear to have been in Derry, so it qualifies for this site.  Cuchulainn and its sister-label Flame (q.v.) were founded by Tony Johnson in 1972.  Flame was intended for Pop artists with a 'Modern international image', according to 'Music Week' of the 17th of November 1973, while Cuchulainn offered material that offered a more traditionally Irish slant.  The two labels were distributed by Meejay Records in the North, Meejay being another of Johnson's companies - his wife played a full part in running it, and it got its name from her initials.  Manufacture of Cuchulainn records appears to have been done by EMI's Irish plant, and in the 1970s the singles had catalogue numbers which were usually in a CCH-000 series.  CCH-006 had a plain green label instead of the 'Warrior' one.  The label operated until at least the mid '80s but it seems to have been more album-orientated after 1974. Distributed By EMI Records.
