This jig from fiddler and box player Eamon Flynn of Mountcollins, Co. Limerick. Eamon spent a significant amount of his life in the states, playing with the likes of Paddy Cronin, Brendan Tonra, Larry Reynolds, and Tommy Sheridan, before moving to Vermont, USA to influence another generation of musicians. This is one of Eamon’s best compositions, but he has quite a few a nice ones out there, include his namesake, Flynn’s reel.
Thady-What a lovely jig! I shall have to check out more of Mr. Flynn’s music.
I only recently came across Eamon Flynn as a composer of tunes when I heard this :
… on the Comhaltas 2012 Tour CD. One of the best reels I’ve heard in years.
Thanks for that, too Kenny. I’ll have a go at it later.
