William Mullaly

The Westmeath Hunt

€20,00

William Mullaly was born near Mullingar, Westmeath in 1884 and he was the first Irish concertina player to issue commercial recordings.

This cd /booklet is published by the Irish Traditional Music Archive and it is an education for people like me who assumed Co. Clare to be the birth place of concertina playing in Ireland.

In this  regard, we have to humbly bow in deference to Meath concertina player, Micheal O Raghallaigh, who always confronted our arrogant ignorance and maintained correctly that West Meath was the source of concertina playing in this country.
