A joyful sound from (then) young very talented players. The Pipers Club Ceili Band won the All-Ireland title in 1975 and 1976. There are interesting switches of tune types and rhythm within tracks (2, 5, 6??, 7??, 13, 14). The listing on the LP cover is as follows:
Side 1
The Salamanca / Patsy Touhy
Masorka/ The Pinch of Snuff
Sixpenny Money/ The Gander in the Pratie Hole
Bean A Ti/The Oak Tree
The Baker/Tom Billy’s
The Humours of Ballyloughlin/Lady Ann McGregory
The Cat/Maggie Pickens

Side 2
Corney’s Coming
Jennies Wedding/Ros Cathan na Mumhan
Apples in Winter/A Trip to Athlone/Ackows
The Brosna Slide/Donal O’Connor’s/Makunas
The Crooked Road
The Road to Kilcracken/The Tinker’s Wife
Breton March / Foxhunters
The Maid on the Cherry Tree/Bucks of Oranmore

I’ve no idea what “Makunas” referred to; there are only the two Brosna slides on track 11. The “Breton March” is actually Bonaparte’s Grand March, which deserves a listing on this site.

Edel McWeeney not as typed.

Re: The Pipers Club

Quite right! I thought I searched for it, but obviously not well enough.
