    Another echo: have a good trip. I'm looking forward to your next tune [or tunes] from wherever you might send it...

    I certainly would like to emulate that!

    No worries Jill I pm'd you yesterday with my contacts. I definitely won't be competing in mandolin, just looked up the timetable & I'm down for 7 categories at the same time with one being in a different venue or town! You can also have a tenor guitar the play around with for your stay here, would you like a fast or a slow one :-)

    Cheers Marty - it looks like my itinerary won't bring me near Mullingar for this visit - will be in Dingle, then up to Clare for stays in Kilkee and Feakle, looking at a few properties up in Carrick on Shannon and then heading back to Dublin via Drogheda to fly back to the States. Thanks for your generous and kind offer!

    Jill, I hope you are able to share a few pictures of your journey! I have always wanted to go to Ireland if only to get some Kilkenny's Irish Cream ale, a Guinness product I think. Sadly someone told me they stopped making it. Anywho have a great trip!

    Cheers John! I'll definitely share some pix. I'll be in Dublin for a few days before flying back and plan on getting over to the Saturday or Sunday session at The Cobblestone.

    Somehow managed to squeeze in time between packing to record a tune for Week 27 - a reel written by Josephine Keegan called "The Aughacashel".

    Lol, if you're in Drogheda you're very welcome to come 20 mins north and record your tune of the week on my Girouard in my studio. I've even got the same nt5 microphones.

    Cheers Sean, I'll only be passing through to drop me rental car off in Drogheda though, and then on a train down to Dublin!

    Nice reel and well-played. I seem to hear what might be influences [at least in the A part of the tune] in another tune that I'm familiar with called "Leather Britches". Thanks for fitting this into your busy itinerary!

    Playing catch up after being away for a few weeks! Here's Week 28's tune (late), a nice Paddy O'Brien reel called "Iniscealtra":



    And the tune for Week 29 is a jig called "Wallop the Pot Lid" aka "The Mouse in the Cupboard":

    No mandolin content as I decided not to bring an instrument with me, but a few pix from me trip:

    Somewhere in Clare - had to pull over to take a photo it was such a lovely day, this was near the Burren (I was driving from Lisdoonvarna to Carrick on Shannon that day and did so via the Clare Circuit)

    Very open if we were always a bit greener here it would look very similar. Thanks for the pics!

    Lovely as always. I'll admit to wondering how and where you put your fiddly bits since I haven't known any of the tunes you've posted to compare, but I do know Wallop the Potlid so that was a comparison I could do! Play on!

    You seem to have had a good break back in your home country, Jill.
    Great tunes once again and a fine effort to catch up so quickly. I especially liked the reel!

    Nice playing Jill. I do like a good mazurka and that is one of the best. On this side of the pond it is usually called the Barnacle Redowa.
