Fire In Clann Ratha

I found this fine reel, a composition of Connie O’Connell, posted on a YouTube playlist of his CD "Ceol Cill na Martra". I had often wondered about his music over the years, having only heard "The Torn Jacket" up until now. Because I never heard any of his other tunes recorded, I imagined that either he didn’t compose a lot, or he was a "one hit wonder". After hearing this, I feel those assumptions of mine can be put to rest! Here’s a link to the YouTube clip:

On a related note, I’ve heard rumor that a book of Connie O’Connell’s compositions is in the works. If anybody out there in Mustardland has any info about this, ‘twould be greatly appreciated!
