Píobaire, An 7 1 9 20110224 (who died in 1979), and Peadar O’Loughlin, who was present with his wife and members of his family. Members of Aggie Whyte’s family were also present for the launch. In her speech, Niamh Bhreathnach treated the audience to en- tertaining reminiscences about the practical ef- fects on her life of living with a great collector. Among other memories, she recalled how, had it not been for her father obtaining space for his projects courtesy of the Arts Council of the time, her own bedroom was on the point of being pressed into service to accommodate her father’s expanding library. The formal recital followed and the audience were keenly appreciative of the playing of the three performers, and of the novel selection of tunes offered. Ciarán Mac Fheidhlimidh, lead- ing off, displayed an ability to engage with the audience in a very entertaining way, which complemented his very fine playing. Barry Kerr and Paddy O’Hare, who followed, did not let the standard drop and the performances of all three left the audience very satisfied indeed with the variety and imagination of the play- ing. Almost immediately, after the formal part of the evening ended, Cormac Ó Briain and other musicians from the North took out their instruments and started playing, causing many listeners to remark on the number of ‘new’ tunes that were being played. The exposure to a different repertoire to the normal Dublin fare was very refreshing. I understand that the music went on until around 4:00am, with many more musicians taking out and taking part.
