Michael Relihan's


A lovely tune that came from the playing of John Kelly, the fiddle and concertina master from west County Clare. John had a storehouse of unusual tunes and was ever so generous in handing them down to other interested musicians. Michael Relihan was a neighbour to John Kelly before John moved to Dublin City. I first heard my friend Larry Gavin playing the version played here by Catherine McEvoy.
