£0.99 plus P&P from Oxfam, via eBay. As ceili band recordings go, this LP is one of the best I’ve heard. No release date anywhere, and no details at all about the band members. If anyone has any information, I’d like to know more.
I’ve changed one or two tune titles, and added a few where the track only had one tune title. If there are any mistakes in the "links", I’ll correct them here later.

Onwards… a few words of a kind…
ONWARDS… is a blog about whatever comes into Eddie Stack’s head. It may be fiction in one posting, a book or gig review in the next…maybe social commentary, bits and pieces picked up on the ether net… stories from music sessions, tales from cattle marts or the back of airplanes.
Eddie Stack is an Irish writer and an American Small Press of the Year Award recipient. He received a Top 100 Irish American Award in response to his book of short fiction, The West: Stories from Ireland, which was published by Island House (US) and Bloomsbury (UK).

Re: Clare Ceili
This is a great recording. There is one extra march that isn’t listed. Also Tierney leads on to a jig in the notes but should be a reel.
