Ballykett Courthouse

“The Ballykett Courthouse” is an old reel from West Clare which is part of a much loved set around Doolin, which I learned at the Sunday evening session with Noel O’Donoghue, Sean Vaughan and friends. The first tune of the set is “Tomeen O’Dea’s”, followed by this reel. Ballykett is an area just oustide of Kilrush and the name was given by flute player Michael Tubridy.
