There were recordings of a concertina player on 78, William Mullaly (sp?)
that date back to the 30's or 40's. Was he from Clare? John Kelly may
count as Clare (vs. Dublin.) He recorded sides for Gael-linn in the early
50's or late 40's I believe, but it could have been later. When were Paddy
Canny's first sides recorded?
