Boyne Hunt (The)

“The Boyne Hunt” is a classic session reel. I learned it from my good friend Stéphane outside Pepper’s pub in Feakle, where we had a few quiet tunes between two great sessions during the Feakle Festival in 2013. It is usually played before “Rolling in the Ryegrass”.

Random Tunes

Kilmovee Jig (The)

The Kilmovee Jig is a common session tune which I associate with my friend Dom Keogh, a great bodhran player from that area in County Mayo. I lived with Dom for a few month here in Doolin, and it was always one of his favourites. It has been recorded on a few CDs, including a nice version by Mary & Gary Shannon on the “Sanctuary Sessions” CD from Cruise’s pub in Ennis. Gavin Whelan also recorded a nice version.
