Dance Music Of Ireland Volume 2 by Matt Cunningham

Note that because this is music as played specifically for set dances there will be some repetition, even within a track - e.g. in Track 13; and a tune may occur more than once in different tracks on the CD, for the same reason - e.g. "Gin I were where Gadie rins"
