Seems the McDermott family of Crockanboy was a musical one; everyone played an instrument of one kind or another. They entertained at home and elsewhere. Here's a poem, recited by Aunt Alice
Round by Dr. Devlin's corner & up through Teebane
Here comes the little avenue that leads to Jimmy Ban's
Sally's in the corner with a program in her hand
Frankie plays the violin and George gives command
The girls are good dancers as you can understand
And you would go a good piece to hear the Crockanboy String Band
Dr. Devlin - a local, Teebane is a nearby townland; Jimmy Ban's - I think a pub. Sally - my great grandmother; Frank and George - great uncles.
