Banjos and teachers: further good advice...

... from Niall Toner, who writes:

The wonderful Martin Cooney [left, of Bending the Strings] is not a gazillion miles from Tipperary, and comes highly recommended. I also recall meeting a fine 5-string player who works with the Pheasant Pluckers in Fethard, Co. Tipperary, and I'm sure he'd be willing to get a young man started. The folks at Croc an Oir would know how to get a contact for him.

Also, I would advise anybody looking for a starter banjo to check in with Tom Cussen in Galway. He always has very affordable instruments in stock. I also see 5-strings for sale on Done Deal for as little as €70.00.
