Jack Sweeney’s

This splendid polka was played by Johnny Leary, Brendan Begley and The Monks of the Screw, so what more recommendation could you want? This setting is based on MotS, who called it Con Thadhgo’s

Re: Jack Sweeney’s

MotS say they got the tune from Johnny O’Leary who had it from Cornelius Cronin, Gullane, Gneeveguilla.
