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.
