There’s A Man Here On Crutches

Snappy hop jig composed by Dónal McCague, from his duo album with Tommy Fitzharris. Played a half step up on the recording.

From the liner notes, "We start this track with a hop jig composed by Dónal in memory of trips to St. Tiernach’s Park, Clones, for Ulster GAA Championship matches. The phrase ‘There’s a Man Here on Crutches’ was used on numerous occasions by Dónal’s late father, Gabriel, as a ploy to enter the restricted areas of Clones to park on the grounds of the nearby nursing home while carrying a pair of crutches in the back seat of the car."
