Pride of Erin
Sean Nugent and his Pride of Erin Céilí Band from County Fermanagh loved to play this jig. So too did Johnny McGreevy from Chicago, who played it for me in 1972 with piano player Eleanor Kane Neary. Jimmy Noonan on flute and Dan Gurney on accordion took the time in 2009 to learn it and record it for this collection. Thanks, boys: beautifully played with that great old swing! For want of a better or more current title, 'Pride of Erin' is fine in my book.
