I feel like I just had a great vacation! Thanks so much for that Kevin, it was wonderful.
Wonderful. I was over there in that very area back in 1978. Man, makes we want to go back.
The lilt, the craic and the diddle-do. Makes my heart warm. Thanks.
Yes, enjoyed it very much.
So much in fact that I've ordered Mary Staunton's Circle Of Friends CD. Irish music the way I like it.

Hanky please, somebody.
I was there, some 24 years ago.
Played in sessions in O'Connor's and McDermot's.
Played "The Ladies' Pantalettes" in an independent hostel washroom when a girl walked in in her underwear.
Went to Inis Oirr but saw nothing - lying on the beach for hours, while my stomach tried to forget the rough crossing and looked forward to the return trip; the next day, I met the woman who is my wife today.
There's a place soaked in memories. Thanks Kevin for posting!
the world is better off without bad ideas, good ideas are better off without the world
Bertram that's excellent! Pity there's no film of your trip back then!
Thanks for sharing this....I didn't know that Brendan Gleeson was a player!
Yes, a really good musician is Brendan, he played on the Cold Mountain soundtrack - I found this snppet from an interview on line
Falls Church, Va.:
Did you do all the fiddling for your character in "Cold Mountain"?
Yes and no. I played all the tunes and sang all the songs but at times needed help to maintain the audience's presence in the theater. In other words, they have a soundtrack but the fiddling is mine.
We went to Nashville for a week and laid a soundtrack before we began shooting the film so I would play the fiddle with the soundtrack in the background.
A great fellow indeed, a thrill to meet and have a tune with.
Great, great music, and lovely pictures too. Would Mr McLeod happen to know the name of the tune which begins at around 4minutes 50seconds?
Its the second tune on track 4 of her excellent album "Circle of Friends"
4. Old Timey Set: Ragtime Dream or Hawthorne's Favourite - Craig Johnston's
glad you liked the video!

Thsi great concert by the early De Danann has finally emerged in its entirety - just sublime to see and hear!
Anyone know the names of the last set of reels - at about 20 minutes in - they never recorded that set, its a cracker!

Brilliant - this users of this site never fail to amaze me! Cheers Mr fretless!
