Forgive me if this is common knowledge, but I see Jimmy O' has released a new album (Thanks to Patrick D'Arcy's announcement on the Uilleann Obsession site!) and I haven't seen it mentioned in this forum, or heard of it otherwise.

Exciting news!TAKE ME TENDER.. is the new CD from Jimmy O'Brien Moran. It is a tribute to the music of Paddy Conneely, a blind piper who lived in Galway. The darling of his age, Conneely gained national fame when his portrait and an accompanying article appeared in the popular Irish Penny Journal of October 3, 1840 - 173 years ago. Having survived the Great Famine Conneely died on September 11, 1851. However, over 180 pieces of his music had been transcribed by at least five collectors leaving a fascinating record of piping style and repertoire in pre-Famine Ireland.
