Sunday in Kerry

Joe Herlihy took me on another cycle in the farming area of Castleisland. There are no hills in Kerry, yeh right!

Jackie gets onto Irish tune composers then is curious to hear & learn everything they have written! The “composer du jour” is Tommy Peoples, the greatest living Irish fiddler (as well as Cathal Hayden). We work on Grainne’s Jig which is for sure a Peoples composition and La Cosa Mulligan, which likely is not. As well what does that mean? La Cosa Mulligan translates from the Spanish as “The Mulligan Thing” which makes no sense at all.

On an unrelated note, Jason is keeping 4 donkeys on Jackie’s land. “There’s a grant for the ass” says Jackie.
