I am originally from Sligo where I played the button accordian during my teens with the Coleman Country Ceili Band. The band included Seamus Tansey, Fred Finn (RIP) Peter Horan, Alfie Joe Dinneen (RIP) and Peg McGrath (RIP). Over the years I play intermittingly (regretfully). However, I am now in a position to make up for lost time and for the past number of months I have played a considerable amount. I am living in Limerick where I spend most of the week. I try to return to Carrick-on-Shannon at weekends where I resided for over 20 years and where I now play most of my music.
