Kilcummin (The)

“The Kilcummin” is a tune I learned from a session in McGann’s Pub with Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. They played it as a jig, but I think it is also played as a slide. Kilcummin is in Co. Kerry, near Killarney.

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”).

The Killavil Jig was one of the first tunes I learned on the tin whistle, before I even started playing the concertina. I believe I learned it from my friend Stéphane, who used to play it a good bit when he first started playing the accordion. It is a very common session tune.
