Polca Dálaigh

I learned “Polca Dálaigh” (Daly’s Polka) from Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh on their album “A Moment of Madness“. As you probably all know, we don’t play many polkas here in Clare, but when that album came out I had to learn a few. It is a really great album which I highly recommend.
