Recorded in Tom Fleming’s Bar Scartaglin
"A sunny summer’s evening - 18th May 1995 - An Ireland soccer match was on every TV in the land but we were oblivious to all of that as Ned and Dan Jeremiah O’Connor, joined by Maurice O’Keeffe, played and recorded a myriad of slides and polkas with the odd few jigs and waltzes thrown in. It was a most magical evening, full of fun and laughter and, most importantly, the music of the local Scartaglin area played by three legendary musicians who were incredibly generous with their tunes and memories of learning those tunes. On 18th of May 2019 we will remember their music! "
