T:Killour House
C:Ed Reavy
Z:Joe Reavy
N:The home of Matty and Bridie Murphy in the Neale (County Mayo). Ed 
N:visited there in '69 with Joe and his wife Mary Jo, (niece of the Murphys). 
N:The house was traditionally Irish: no hot water, no "fancy plumbing," only 
N:a full measure of love and genuine Irish hospitality. The Murphys follow the
N:simple life and this left us with fond memories long
N:after we returned to the States. May Killour House live
N:on in this traditional tune dedicated to them by Ed.
