Anthony Frawley’s

“Anthony Frawley’s” is a very common jig in the Doolin area. I don’t remember where or when I learned it, but I associate this tune with Christy Barry, Terry Bingham and Kevin Griffin who recorded it for a TG4 program during the summer of 2014.

I recorded the tune a few years ago, check out the video below!

In the sleeve notes of the album, Claire explains that she was told by Imelda Roland’s daughter that her mother used to lilt this tune while boiling potatoes for the pigs. The tune was picked up and made popular later by Joe Cooley and her brother Raymond Roland.

Master Crowley’s

Master Crowley’s is a reel I learned from Hugh Healy, a great concertina player from Corofin in Co. Clare. It is sometimes played with a third part which is actually the first part of “The Roscommon Reel” (also known as Master Crowley’s!), and I’ve even heard the two tunes play together as a 5-part reel.

I learned “Dinny O’Brien’s” at a workshop with Terry Bingham during the Russell Memorial Weekend a few years ago. It is a reel written by the great composer Paddy O’Brien from Tipperary.
