Two comments

I got this CD out of the library today. Nice everyday stuff from the Tulla Ceili Band. Nice arrangements of tunes too.

The Hornpipes on track 17 are just two well known reels at hornpipe pace.

Tulla Favourite = Sunny Banks
Mary Bergin’s = Boys of Ballinahinch

I’ve owned this for a long time as a GTD cassette but with 2 songs per side, none of which I cared for, and the bother of skipping with the cassette format never played it much. Now I have tunes only on the mp3 player have have enjoyed it far more recently than in previous decades.
