2nd polka is more commonly known as "The Cuban", which hasn’t been posted yet. Billy Clifford recorded it under that title, I’m pretty sure.
The 3rd polka is connecting to the reel of the same name - it should be this :
Toormore / Tournmore etc…Track 6
Toormore / Tournmore etc…also Track 14
Track 14 is the same 2 polkas , guess they didn’t like the way the first guys played them :)
Track 16 is linking to a polka, but it’s a slide.
Track 17 - "Tom Billy’s" is linking to a jig, but as I suspected, it’s the reel I know as "The Humours Of Scartaglen" - here :
By the way, thanks to "Genny" for making me aware of this recording. There’s some great Sliabh Luachra dance music on it, but I have to say, I wasn’t too taken with the singing on this occasion.
Thanks Kenny, you’ve done a fair amount of work there.
