  1. MacMahon, Tony & Noel Hill - Cail
    The Maids of Castlebar, The Collier's Reel. These two reels share a powerful sense of wild comfort - wild in their optimistic lifting of listener, dancer and player into a state of hopeful excitement, comfortable in being racy of the soil of Ireland.
  2. MacMahon, Tony & Noel Hill - Na Lil
    Lilies in the Field, The Limerick Lassies. Reels to speed the pulse and rise your heart! Call the Dancers!

    Who can tell us of the miles and miles of music which illuminated the long winter nights of days gone by on Spike Island - perched in the wild ocean of the south.

  12. MacMahon, Tony & Noel Hill - An M
    The Bag of Potatoes, The Bird on the Tree. Both are grand old reels, combining an impetuous celebration with a sharp and tender melancholy.
  13. MacMahon, Tony & Noel Hill - An Buachaill Fionn, An R
