Seán and P.J. were born in the Newtown area near Nenagh and were the All Ireland duet champions of 1956 at the famous Fleadh down in Ennis where they locked horns with Peadar O' Loughlin and Paddy Murphy. Seán also won the coveted solo fiddle title at the same event.
This is a recording of these two masters from the late 1950s made for the American label, Avoca.
