Flagstone of Memories

“Flagstone of Memories” great reel composed by Vincent Broderick. I learned it after a session in McCarthy’s in Coore during  Willie Week. It was a great session with my friends Tom Delany and Sammi König and we were joined by Josephine Marsh. It was the first time I had the chance to play with Josephine and I really enjoyed it !
