O'Neills 1001 - The Dance Music of Ireland




Francis O'Neill (1848 - 1936) is the most famous and influential collector of Irish traditional music, and "The Dance Music of Ireland", better known as "O'Neills 1001", is the single most popular collection of Irish Dance music ever printed. First published in 1907, it has never been surpassed as the standard reference for traditional musicians. Indeed, it has circulated so widely over the years that it has become known as "The Book" - a virtual bible for all those who love Irish traditional music.
