Billy O’Rourke Is The Buachaill

I learned “Billy O’Rourke Is The Buachaill” from my friend Damian Werner, a great flute player from Hawaii who has been living in Co. Clare for many years. He played this tune at a session during the Corofin Trad Fest 2014. This jig also features the great album “Tunes In The Church”, played by Cormac & Cliodhna Begley under the name “P. Joe’s” in relation to PJ Hayes.
