Never heard 'Clare Conscience' then? You should have a listen.

Pretty active fluteplayer, often in the company of Aidan McMahon, the Howleys and and the Kilfenora crowd.

There are other nice fluteplayers there, Noel O Donoghue for one:

You'll probably find Brian O'Loughlin from Corofin worth looking into as well:

I heard him in sessions at the Willie Clancy week about 20 years ago, a very strong, powerful player. Isn't / wasn't he a member of the Kilfenora Ceili Band at one time ?

Thomas, I'm surprised you did not hear of him on Wooden Flute Obsession volume 2 (2004).

Thanks for the tips. Occasionally some musicians slip under the radar. Majella O'Beirne, flute, and piper Seamus Meehan for instance.
