“Kilkelly Ireland” sung by its composer Peter Jones

Peter and his wife Holly joined us for Evening Mass in Urlaur Church.  His Great Grandfather, the man around whom the song is written came from this part of the parish and the letter writer, teacher Pat McNamara is buried in the cemetery at nearby Urlaur Abbey.
