Joan O’ Connell – “I would like to let know that Ann Keane was mentioned, at a ceile workshop, in Delaware USA, in October. Pádraig and Róisín McEneany were giving the workshop, he was teaching us the Aubane set, which he received from Anne at the gathering in Killarney. Anne also composed that set herself. I was there with my daughter Michelle. We had a great weekend. Thank you Anne, rest in peace xx” (At the Greater Washington Ceili Club Fall Fling, October 2019)
