Drunken Landlady The 'Drunken Landlady is associated with my friend and great fiddle player Bobby Casey from near Quilty in West Clare. He has lived in London most of his life. 'The Bucks of Oranmore' was a favourite of the legendary Joe Cooley, whom I had the good fortune of meeting and spending time with. We played many tunes and talked about old times. The feeling and soul in Joe's music will live on forever.

Jonie Madden's

The first jig was composed by Jonie Madden, a great whistle player from New York. The second jig was composed by Paddy Fahy who is very well known for his many excellent compositions. I have fond memories of Paddy Fahy and his wife Ann visiting my house in Galway every Sunday night in 1979 and 1980 when we played and exchanged tunes until the early hours.

Reavey's Hornpipes are my favourite pieces of music,especially those composed by Ed Reavey.

Reavey's Again, these are two more of Ed Reavey's compositions. They are more suited to the fiddle, than the accordion, so I play them at a slower tempo than usual.

Boys of Laois 'The Boys of Laois' was composed by the legendary Dublin fiddle player, Tommy Potts, and is one of my favourite tunes. The second reel is one of Josephine Keegan's many fine compositions.

Mulqueeney's The first hornpipe was composed by Jim Mulqueeney, who played with the famous Kilfenora Ceili Band. 'The Wanderer' was a big favourite with the great Wexford accordion player, George Ross. When I began playing the accordion my uncle gave him a 78 record of George Ross and his playing had a great influence on him. The highlight of my musical career was when George Ross adjudicated and gave him 1st place in the Oireachtas 1972 and the All Ireland Senior Accordion Championship in 1980.
