The Knockaclarig Slide

This is a classic Sliabh Luachra Slide. It's heard a lot at sessions either played with the one that follows it in the first sample here - These are on the first Scullys Fest release and at the time I didn't have a name for them so I called them what my dad guessed they were called.

More often you'll hear this slide last in a set with The Brosna Slide and the Scartaglin Slide before it.

Toureendarby Slide 2

slow version: https://youtu.be/xm2kGptdvh8?t=2m4s

This tune appears on Timmy O'Connor's album "As it was in Toureendarby". He named it "Johnny Mickeys". With Timmy's permission I changed the name - there is a wealth of dance music named after Johnny Mickey Barry and I wanted to avoid it being confused with other slides with the same names.
