"Seamus Walshe is a former winner of the Oireachtas and All Ireland Accordion Championships. Originally from Mullagh, Co Clare, he now lives in Galway. In this, his second recording he has included three completely original reels which have never been recorded before. These reels were composed by Martin Ruane, the gifted Mayo fiddle player."

"I wish to dedicate this recording to my wife Mary, my mother and to the memory of my music teacher Tommy Coen, and to that of my uncle Thomas O’Connor, who always gave me great encouragement - Seamus Walshe"
