"The Lark in the Morning" is an album by Liam Clancy, Tommy Makem, Family and Friends.

It has the distinction of being the first album-length recording of Irish music to be recorded in Ireland. It was recorded by Diane Hamilton and Catherine Wright on portable equipment, between August and December 1955. It was issued on Tradition Records in 1956 as TLP 1004. There is quite a lot of echo in the sound. At the time Liam Clancy, the youngest member of the Clancy Brothers had not yet joined the group. He traveled back to the USA with Diane Hamilton in 1956. Tracks 5, 9, 13, 17 and 21 are sung in Irish Gaelic, itself a rarity at the time. Tracks 3, 8, 16 and 20 are instrumentals. Paddy Tunney's version of "The Lowlands of Holland" is the one that was later used by Steeleye Span. Most of the artists went on to be recorded by later collectors. Running time: 48 mins 40secs. The liner notes for the 1996 Rykodisc reissue are by Liam Clancy.
