Maid I Ne’er Forgot (The)

The Maid I Ne’er Forgot is often played before the Lads of Laois, another great reel. They were recorded together by Nollaig Casey & Arty McGlynn and the set was played at the local session I used to go to in Switzerland. I learned it here in Doolin though, from sessions with Christy Barry, Colin Nea and the great Michael Kelleher on fiddle.
