Sun Room Serenades

I spent a very pleasant afternoon entertaining patients in St Joseph's Ennis at the invitation of Staff Nurse Fiona Moran. The tea party took place in the lovely Sun Room. I was accompanied by Brian Flynn on guitar and tenor Tony Murray .  Among the party  were Kathleen and her family, including grandaughter Mathilda, harpist Maireid Slattery and her mother violinist Margaret Slattery .

Our selection included  Irish favourites  beginning with  The Lark in the Clear Air and finishing with Waltzing Mathilde dedicated to our youngest guest.   Numbers included ,  I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen, The Star of the County Down, Believe Me of All Those Endearing Young Charms and at the special request of an attendee at the 1932 IEC , Panis Angelicus and  a lovely rendition of  When You and I Were Young Maggie .  No jigs or reels today but some tunes from Fred Astaire films, Dancin Cheek to Cheek and A Fine Romance.  Thanks to Sarah for the fondant fancies.
