O'Reilly's Fancy


My friend in Tulla, Larry Gavin, sent me this reel thirty-five years ago. I love Larry's accordion playing and I am grateful to him for supplying many wonderful tunes to me during all the years that I have lived in America. Larry, as they say, you 'kept me at it'. The reel is played on this track by Joanie Madden.
