Beware - Aliens! I’m sure I posted comments last night with this - but they’ve vanished! 🙂
Here goes again!
Clareman Conor Keane is best known for his time with ‘Four Men & a Dog’ also ‘Arcady’ & a spell with ‘Frances Black’.
He tells us he got the tunes for this recording from the following sources:
Joe Cooley, John King, Micho Russell, Shaskeen & Willie Clancy.
He learned the slides (Track 2) on side one from Eamonn McGivney & ‘The Flowing Tide’ from Chris Droney
Conor Keane - Accordions
Niall Sheedy - Guitar
Kevin Griffin - Banjo
Kevin Crawford - Bodhran (!)
Alan Keane Bass on Konsta P V
Harmony Row Studios - Ennis (065 87159)
A Kerry Slide
The link on the details page is wrong--it links of a (Kerry Reel).
I believe this slide is Danny O‘’Shea’s, although it is played a bit differently on this recording than the posted ABC.

This recording has been one of my favorites since I bought it in Ireland about 10 years ago. The box/banjo numbers are particularly tasty.
Tune ID: Gan Ainm
“The Reverend” said the tune fragment I put in for the 3rd tune (Gan Ainm ) in set no 6 seems to be very close to Cal Callaghan’s Reel
In his comment on this entry *52Paddy* says the tune is allready there.
And thats The Doon Reel
I love the session.org 😉
