I was seven years of age the first time

I was seven years of age the first time

I went to Finbar Murphy Murphys house

In my mothers home place

In County Clare

Large glass bulbs of all colours

Musician playing transverse flute royalty-free stock photo

Used  to hold fish nets at sea

Hung from the ceiling


Finbar took down a flute

And played a Clare Reel

The Clare sound sent amazing rythems through my mind

My shoes move to dance

It was a Clare house and a Clare tune

A magical moment

In the heart of my being

That is still there.
