Thanks Brian.

Also, in case anybody cares, the tune played by the Corrs is sometimes called "The Ivy Leaf" but OC you would never guess that if you heard other players at it - eg Mary Bergen Feadog Stain 2 for example. Also recorded as "The Day I Met Tom Moylan". Tom might be related to Terry Moylan of NPU; if so, it surely was a great day, as Terry is a hoot both in person and to read.

The first Polka they played, I know from way back, but I never heard a name for it except we used call it the Killkenny Polka - probably because the we learned off of a Killkenny musician. The second one is popular fiddle polka and not, I notice, a rare Sliabh Luachra tune.

Suppose those folks have to kill sombody, Kenny would be as good as the next. ( silly joke )
