The Famous Faha Sports

"The Famous Faha Sports by Seán Ó Sé with The Turloughmore Ceilí Band. Fahanlunaghta Mór and Fahanlunaghta Beag lie to the east between Miltown Malbay and Lahinch, and were the scene of a popular sports day which was discontinued during the Second World War. The great concertina player Kitty Hayes, was originally Kitty Smith from Fahanlunaghta. Kitty passed away in May 2008, leaving behind a rich legacy of music. Tim Dennehy recorded a version of this song on his album 'A Thimbleful of Song'. The authorship is attributed to Miko Guthrie with extra verses added by Breandán Higgins of Lahinch."
