Earl of Thomond (The)

“The Earl of Thomond” is a barndance composed by Charlie Lennon. He wrote this tune for Tony O’Connell, concertina player from Limerick, who recorded a lovely album with Ben Lennon (Charlie’s brother) called “Rossinver Braes”. Charlie Lennon actually wrote another barndance that goes before “The Earl of Thomond”, which he called “Lord Leitrim” for his brother Ben. They make a lovely set together which I learned directly from Tony O’Connell.

Girls of Farranfore (The)

I learned “The Girls of Farranfore” as part of a set played by the great accordion player from Limerick Donie Nolan, which I recorded during the Russell Weekend 2013. It comes after another reel called “The Pride Of Rathmore”. They are also played together sometimes, but as a three part reel (“The Pride Of Rathmore” followed by the first part of “The Girls Of Farranfore”).
