He visited Dan Connell’s in Knocknagree religiously and loved dancing to and playing with Johnny O’Leary and Mikey Duggan. He learned lots of his tunes from Timmy Connors and Patrick O’Connor but also got plenty of music from the likes of Dan Herlihy, Maurice O’Keeffe, Dan Jerimiah O’Connor, Dan O’Keeffe, Tom Carroll, Denis McMahon, Raymond O’Sullivan, Paddy Jones and many other who he played with often at his family’s Rambling House in Boherbue. He travelled all over the world playing in Irish traditional dance shows.
