Just got a copy of this

From the CD stall at Solfest , togther with volume 1 — I’ve never seen it for sale anyhwere else. Excellent recording

Cooley’s

The link for the second tune on track 14, "Cooley’s", goes to the reel rather than the hornpipe. How does one fix this? I apologize for my ignorance.

seems to be easily avaiable on Amazon UK now

The Padraig o keefes jig.? Is it right

“Mary Bergin: Feadóga Stáin 2” ~ musicians & whistles (the keys)

Gael-Linn CEFC 149 ~ this cassette had full notes
Shanachie SH 79083, 1993 ~ for this CD the notes were not complete, missing the Irish and there is no listing of the whistles used, their keys…

I haven’t found the LP to check it, if we ever had it. We’ve had a couple of copies of the first LP, having given some away…

I had some difficulties with this recording as the one we have is all a half step sharp, which is not anything new, but can cause confusion, for example, the Eb whistle tracks will sound as if played on an E whsitle, etc.

Track 5 - Julia Clifford’s polka

Note that the "Julia Clifford’s" tune linked in the track listing goes to Julia Clifford’s slide (https://thesession.org/tunes/5162), but the actual tune on the recording is "Julia Clifford’s Polka," which is here: https://thesession.org/tunes/3594 under the name Johnny Spillane’s Favourite (which is the name Clifford herself recorded it under, according to the notes there).
