I called into The Half Barrel to chat with publican Kathleen O’Connor. Looks like we’ll play there on Fair Day, Tuesday November 1st. John Lordon was having a pint so I jopined him to talk politics, history, stories and not much in general – just fun pub talk. Then I visited with Joe & Ellen Herlihy. I guess I am going with Joe, Jackie and Annie to the bog tomorrow. Back at the farm Jackie and I played our favourite tunes; The Galway Reel, Josephine Keegan’s No. 1, Cosa Mulligan, The Morning Mist Hornpipe, The Spotted Dog Jig, Eddie Kelly’s No. 2, and so on. Jackie is quite excited about his new Danish Quadrille.
