Jackie Coleman’s

I learned “Jackie Coleman’s” from Dympna O’Sullivan’s album “Bean Chairdín”. It is a popular reel around Doolin and I associate it with flute player Stéphane Germain in particular.

“The Limestone Rock” is a common session tune here in North Clare and the name is actually a reference to the Burren. This reel appears in O’Neill’s book as “Tit for Tat”. It is very often followed by “The Humours of Loughrea”, another great reel. I learned this set from Noel O’Donoghue.
