The Patrick O’Keeffe festival has come to its last day. I call into Kearney’s to play with Dennis O’Connor & Con Moynihan. I had a great 4 hours of playing slides & polkas & reels & jigs. Young Timmy Flaherty (age 15) is outstanding on his banjo – he even has a band now “Sound as a Pound”. So that was 4 hours of tunes. Annie collected me then at “half 9” Jackie & I drove to Brosna. Twas another altogether mighty night of tunes and songs. No Terrance tonight but Ned Casey joined us with his fiddle. People were commenting that I am looking stronger in the 2 weeks I have been around. I am doing my physio faithfully.
