Series 26 Episode 15
Anne Morrison-Smyth keeps an unruly bunch in order, at a swarry in Ma Kelly’s pub in Ballymoney - where music, singing and tall tales are the order of the day.
John Watt sings a song about the great fighter “McCook”, Alan Wade and Riley Piddington play the small pipes & guitar, and Diana Culbertson sings a couple of Scottish ballads.
There are stories about three-legged greyhounds; memories of more innocent summers - when the big event was the Sunday School trip, and we hear about the stealing of prize orange lilies on the eleventh night!
