Source and
other information
[Self-published] MMCD 002, 2004. Recorded in Tuam, Co. Galway. The copy indexed here, purchased new in 2015, seems to be a later reissue due to the lack of liner notes and musician credits which apparently existed in the initial issue. The accompanists are therefore identified here based on several other published sources about this album, for example Philippe Varlet's Celtic Grooves page accessed 9 September 2015. Not indexed here: track 4 (No Place Like Home), track 10 (Ruby's Birthday), track 11 (Really Green Reel).
