Written by Paddy O’ Brien. This slip jig is dedicated to Paddy O’ Briens life long friend and fellow musician Liam O’ Connor. Liam, who hails from Brosna in Co. Kerry, came to the area through his profession as a primary school teacher. He held a teaching post in Borrisokane for many years. Liam married local lady, Dolly Kennedy and settled in Portroe. Dolly’s father, “The Caddy” Kennedy was a fiddler from the area and the Kennedy and O’ Connor houselholds were always open houses for musicians. Liam and Dolly’s son Gerry “Banjo” has achieved international recognition for his virtuoso style of playing. Another son, Michael is also a highly acclaimed button accordionist.
