Philip Walsh

I know next to nothing about Phil Walsh except that he was a blind fiddler from Sliabh Maol, probably roughly contemporary with Tom Billy, and is mostly only known as the source of Walsh’s Hornpipe. He may have taught or at least played with Bill the Weaver. Other than that, he’s a figure shrouded in mystery. That picture up there ^ is definitely not him.
