The Irish Examiner Newspaper Featured Jackie Daly - Ireland

Video: Jackie Daly and Seamus Creagh Sullivan's, Britches Full of Stitches.

Some excerpts from the article about his 6 decades of music making.

In Jackie Daly’s case, the title of laoch, or hero, is added to that of Gradam Ceoil winner, All-Ireland senior accordion champion — the only Corkman to win either award — and doyen of Sliabh Luachra box-playing.

His anecdotes are as much a tradition of his performances as the tunes.

He tells another anecdote about Galway accordion maestro Joe Burke, who visited Jackie in hospital in Cork after he suffered a brain haemorrhage.

“The doctor was testing me and Joe said ‘Doctor I know what’s wrong with him. His head is full of slides and polkas rather than decent jigs and reels’. I said ‘Joe, thank you for visiting me. I’m going to compose a tune in your honour’. I did, and it’s Joe Burke’s polka. People say to him Joe, play your polka, so I definitely got my own back. He’s never played it.”
