John Ryan's (Number One)


Broadcaster and collector Ciarán Mac Mathúna recorded this tune from John Ryan, the concertina player from County Tipperary, who lived on Thomas Street in Dublin City, across the street from the headquarters of the old Pipers' Club. The tune is played here by my nephew Damien Connolly on melodeon.
