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”).

Contentment is Wealth

“Contentment is Wealth” is a great jig I learned from my friend Thierry Masure, a fiddle player from Belgium who lives in Co. Clare also. There are a few different versions of this tune, but this is the one I got from Thierry, which was also recorded by Paddy Murphy, the legendary concertina player from Fiach Roe, Co. Clare. Another great recording of this lovely jig can also be found on Dan Gurney’s album.

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.

Hug The Bundle

I learned “Hug The Bundle” from uilleann piper Brian McNamara. He recorded this strathspey on his album “Fort of the Jewels”, which is one of my favourite piping albums. This tune has no connection with Doolin though and I never heard it anywhere. Still love it though!
