"The Irish Rovers perform seven songs in County Clare and Limerick in the west of Ireland, starting at the Cliffs of Moher ("Come to the Bower" & a reel), in the Burren ("Burren's Rocky Plain"), the peat bogs ("Mick McGuire" and "Dan O'Hara") and at Durty Nelly's Pub by Bunratty Castle near Shannon Airport ("Willie's Gone to Melville Castle" and "Juice of the Barley") for their Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's national half hour series 'The Irish Rovers in Ireland' in the 1970s. The Rovers were Will Millar, Jimmy Ferguson, George Millar, Joe Millar, Wilcil McDowell." Also included in the video is Dinny McMahon playing the tin whistle at the Cliffs of Moher.
