Máire Mo Chara


This air, played here by its composer, Josephine Keegan, is a special tribute to her friend Máire McDonnell-Garvey, author of numerous books on the history and music of the West of Ireland. Máire worked all her life promoting traditional Irish music. She was secretary to the Dublin County branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, and she was a fine fiddle player in the Roscommon and Sligo styles of playing. Thank you, Josephine, for remembering Máire with this lovely air.
