I don't know if he's originally from Feakle (though I think not) but he now lives in
Newmarket-on-Fergus. One of the Kitchen Sessions was broadcast from his home on
http://www.clarefm.ie/special.php?section=the%20kitchen%20sessions . He used to play
regularly in the Thursday session with Seamus Bugler in Shortt's in Feakle. I'm not sure if
he still does. He was a long-time member of the Tulla Ceili Band.
