Corofin flute player Garry Shannon with some Jigs and The Contradiction Reel

Concert flute maestro Garry Shannon from Corofin plays a set of jigs: the first is a composition of Dublin fiddle player Paul O'Shaughnessy, who was one of the team of tutors at the 2008 Meitheal Residential Summer School. Garry Shannon is the co-ordinator of the school. Inaugurated in 2004, the school has been a huge success, attracting participants from all over Ireland and overseas. The 2010 Meitheal Residential Summer School takes place from July 19th to 23rd at Villiers School, Limerick. Posted on Youtube by comhaltas on September 10, 2008
