Boru - The High King of Tara
tells us that in 1014 (1000 years ago) following
a fierce and bloody battle on the plain of Clontarf,
just north of Dublin, the armies of Brian Boru
defeated and routed the Viking invaders from Ireland.
Ten centuries later renowned Leitrim fiddle player
Maurice Lennon composed a superb musical
tribute to the life of Brian Boru. Based on Morgan
Llywelyn's book 'Lion of Ireland' Maurice's sweeping
suite captures the passion, the terror and the
sheer villainy and epic heroism of the times with
all the laconic ease.

The Piper' Call
in Kill Co. Kildare to musical parents; Liam O'Flynn's
father played the fiddle and his mother played the
piano. After his first encounter with the uilleann
pipes, the greatest influences of his development
were Leo Rowsome, Willie Clancy, and Séamus Ennis.In
addition to being a founder member of Planxty and
his ground breaking recordings with Shaun Davey,
Liam has also released a number of hugely popular
albums in his own right.
For the most recent
of these 'The Piper's Call' Liam is joined by his
good friends Carlos Núñez, The Irish Chamber Orchestra,
Sean Keane and Matt Molloy of The Chieftains, Steve
Cooney, Arty McGlynn and Mark Knopfler. The result
is an album of contrasting moods that demonstrate
the considerable talents of Liam and the splendour
of the uilleann pipes sound. More
