Crónán Na Máthar

I apologize as I don’t know the story behind this air. I heard it from the playing of Séamus Ennis, on the album
“Seoda Ceoil 1&2”. A very beautiful and ethereal slow air IMHO.

If anyone has any information on this piece it’d be greatly appreciated.

Re: Crónán Na Máthar

Ennis got this from Frank Cassidy, the Donegal fiddle player
