    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!

    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"?

     

    Brendan Gleeson:

    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?
