Con Mullane’s

From Martin Mulvihill’s 1978 LP ‘Traditional Irish Fiddling from County Limerick’. Con Mullane was a fiddler from the parish of Athea. “A very educated man and a great fiddle player.” Con taught Martin Mulvihill the reel one night while Martin was visiting. “I was coming home around 2.00 in the morning. I got off my bicycle because I thought I had forgotten the reel. I took the fiddle out of the bag and sat down near a reek of turf and started the reel. And this farmer was going to the fair at listowel with some calves and cattle…there were about six, I think, and each of the cattle went in a different direction. Three of them went into a bog and it took another hour to round all the cattle up. Well, the curses I got!”
