John Ryan's (Number Two)
Concertina player John Ryan lived on Thomas Street in Dublin, just opposite the old Pipers' Club. One can only imagine the music echoing up and down the streets of that part of the city! Ciarán Mac Mathúna visited John Ryan's home and recorded this polka, one of many tunes that he brought with him from his native County Tipperary. It is played here on melodeon by my nephew Damien.
