“Flea Ceoil”

"…GAEL-LINN are proud to present this album which is the first permanent record of one of the greatest and most original features of life in Ireland to-day"

Sorry but apart from the fact that the ‘a’ should have one of those fada jobs above it, that is the way it is spelt on the LP!

I was just starting on the Banjo when I spotted this LP in the early 70s.
It was on the Gael-Linn label but there is no date on either the cover or the Album, although the sleeve notes mention that the recording was actually carried out at a ‘gathering’ in Clones, Co Monaghan, in 1964.
From this, it might be safe to assume that the LP came out the following year 1965?

The musical flea? Does it play on a very small fiddle?

Is it possible to produce those fada yolks on an Apple Keyboard?

Good album

this is a great record!

i found this stashed in the junk room of my flat.
(along with a bunch of other Gael Linn and Topic records.
i was extremely chuffed when i found them.

im currently flinging it on the ipod.
