ComhaltasLive #281-4: Dartry Céilí Band at the All-Ireland

Second place in the Senior Céilí Band competition at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2008 also went to Co. Sligo: the Dartry Céilí Band. Included in their performance, they played this multi-part barn dance.

Band members are: John Kilkenny, Mossie Martin, Declan Folan and Philip Duffy, fiddles; Noelle Carroll and June McCormack, flutes; Michael Rooney, concertina; Stephen Nolan, accordion; Damien McGuinness, drums and Kevin Brehony, piano.

Incidentally, about 12 members of the Innisfree and Dartry Céilí Bands learned their early music from fiddle player and teacher Paddy Ryan from Co. Roscommon. Paddy, well-known as a presenter of traditional music programmes on Midlands Radio is also one of the organisers of Scoil Éigse since its inception many years ago.
