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”.

“The Humours of Tullycrine” is a wonderful hornpipe and has been one of my favourite tunes for many years. It is quite a common hornpipe in Clare, and I associate it Sean Vaughan in particular. It is often followed by another beautiful hornpipe, “Mickey Callaghan’s Fancy”.
