She won the senior fiddle competition at the 1963 All-IrelandFleadh Cheoil and her son, Billy, won the All-Ireland title for concert flute in 1970. With her husband John
Clifford, and others, she made several records including ‘The Star of Munster Trio’ and ‘The Humours of Lisheen’, Here she tells her own story. She was aged 72 at the time.
