Seoirse Bodley was recorded at his home in Dublin. He recalls his schooldays and his initial introduction to music. He was taught to play the mandolin by his father, who was a huge influence on his young life. He was always fascinated by the sounds of various instruments, and would regularly be found at Piggotts in Dublin, who had a system of hiring out musical instruments. He studied at UCD for his B. Mus. Degree, and in 1955 he left for Germany to continue his musical studies. From 1957–1959 he was based in Stuttgart, where he studied piano, composition and conducting.

Ann Quain is the daughter of Geraldine and Seán Neeson, and her home is enhanced by wonderful memorabilia of her parents’ lives and careers. Geraldine Neeson was a piano teacher and fine performer, and was also an actor, radio presenter and journalist, and she is recalled by her daughter with great admiration and affection. Seán Neeson was a Gaelgeoir, lecturer in Music at UCC and predecessor to Seán Ó Riada in that position. He was a contemporary of Aloys Fleischmann Snr, and his wife Tilly anecdotally recalls her parents’ long association with the Fleischmann family. Ann herself has been steeped in the arts from her earliest years. She attended St Angela’s College where her mother taught, which created interesting tensions!

She also recalls An Tostal and her performances with the CCYMS in Castle Street. Her vivid memories of the death of her mother Geraldine Neeson are also included in the recording.
