Éalú is/was a group a musicians based in Co.Kildare: Brian Ryan (flute & whistle), Caitríona Ryan (fiddle), Maria Corbet (harp & vocals) and Fiona Corbet (guitar and bodhrán). Brian & Caitríona Ryan are children of Seán Ryan, the late prolific fiddle player and composer of tunes with Brian also married to Fiona. They recorded this CD in late 1998, prior to a ‘world tour’. I don’t know if it’s commercially available. Some notes
