A Musical Tribute to Grace O'Malley

Grace O’Mally’s Castle, on Achill Island, is over 500 years old.  Grace, the female pirate, was quite a colorful character, and quite well educated too. She is remembered for a great many things (including a visit with Queen Elizabeth in a effort to maintain control of her territory.... Grace spoke no English, the Queen spoke no Gaelic, so they conversed in a common language; Latin).  Way to go Grace! We celebrated the feminine energy of this wonderful Irish feminine Icon by having Ann and John play a few fiddle songs inside.
