Killaloe Reel, The

Story

My nephew Damien Connolly plays a reel of his own composition. In his words he tells us about his native Killaloe: 'I am very proud of my hometown of Killaloe, County Clare. I lived there for twelve years before moving to Ennis. Killaloe is my first love, as it were. Every morning I would open the window and look out on the hills of the surrounding countryside and breathe in the fresh air. I have so many fond childhood memories from that old town. It's situated right on the river Shannon, so it's a beautiful place indeed... A couple of years ago, I purchased a bouzouki off eBay, tuned it up, and this is the tune that fell right out.'
