'Cross-roads dancing in Co. Kerry. Old Irish dances and old Irish music still bring gaiety and lightheartedness to the young folk.' From Your Holiday in Ireland, a guidebook published in 1948.

Martin 'Junior' Crehan, seen at the right in this photograph with Bobby Casey at the Ballard Cemetary in Miltown Malbay last year, died at home in Mullagh on Monday, 3 August 1998 at the age of 90. Junior was the embodiment of Irish tradition - a fiddler, dancer, teacher and storyteller. He was involved in the Willie Clancy Summer School since its inception and was a familiar and beloved figure to all who attended it.
