Which Tom Ward is it?
Anice rendition of Tom Ward’s reel over on http://comhaltas.ie/music/detail/comhaltaslive_221_6_sinead_heagney_and_damien_oreilly/ played by two young Corofin musicians. The pace is good too for anyone trying to learn the tune by ear. However, my main interest is discovering who the tune is named after. There was a Tom Ward in Clare who was a brother of banjo/flute player Jimmy Ward of Kilfenora Band fame who I think it might be. Do you all agree or is it an older tune?
