Jay and I called into Killoran’s Pub in the town of Tubbercurry. Now your man could not say exactly he was related to the great Sligo fiddler, Paddy Killoran who recorded in New york in the 20’s and 30’s he did say “We’re all branches on the same tree”. He opened up the dance hall and it was spectacular. There on the wall featured a lrge painting the incuded Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran and James Morrison standing and playing their fiddles by a lake.
Their was a wind up gramophone there. The next thing you know we are listing to 78’s of Coleman and Morrison on the gramophone! Surreal.
