Maith thú, a Mhuiris

Maith thú Muiris. ( 3:13 )

Muiris Ó Rócháin was one of my pals.   He was a noble man. He died in 2011 and we all mourned him.  We three dedicated this album to his memory.  He was from Corca Dhuibhne (Dingle Peninsula).  A teacher and collector of folklore, he also was part of many organizations that furthered Irish culture around the world for forty years.  He was a captain or leader of the “Naisiún Gaelach” or the Gaelic Nation.  But to me, and to Martin and Caoimhín, he was a friend who shared a love of rural life and its cultural expressions.    This simple polka is an attempt by me to remember him.
