This is the second tune played on track 5 (Bealach an Doirin — The Path through the Wood) of Boil the Breakfast Early (The Chieftains 9). It was played in D minor on that album, but I’ve given the ABC notation in E minor, the key in which I have heard it played most often.

“Teahan’s Favourite” / “Seamus Creagh’s” ~ Ptarmigan transcript

Finger on the button, but before things go ‘poof’, and knowing that feeling, here’s Ptarmigan’s bit of work on this tune, transcribed from where?, well, he didn’t say, so hopefully he will add something to this later?

Knocknagree…

Recorded by Billy & Julia Clifford as the "Knocknagree", I seem to remember.

Murphy’s

That’s an aweful lot of recordings. But one I query. The Rowsome Tradition by Kevin Rowsome is a great piping cd. But Murphy’s on there is a hornpipe.

Eber Finn ~ it is the loose nature of the database, not all "Teahan’s" on this site are the same tune, but all tunes called "Teahan" can and often do link to something other than what is actually on the recording. It can be confusing and does lessen the value of the database in this respect. Consider "Padraig O’Keeffe’s". Yes, and did I mention ‘frustrating’?
