Interesting it is noted there as ‘very much an east Clare tune’. While it is a tune that Paddy Canny’s father had (Martin Hayes at the first Gloaming concert said ‘it’s a sort of lullaby my father played’ PJ got it from Canny) I found an almost exact version of O’Farrell’s collections nearly twenty years ago. I had learned the tune from the Lough Graney tape and was dumbstruck about the tune surviving in a local repertoire since.

First one is a John Kelly one, Elisabeth Kelly or one of those tunes he got from his mother.

If I remember correctly they called it ‘Pat Canny’s’ on the original Lough Graney tape. Can’t remember what it was in O’Farrell’s but will have a look.

There’s 2 names I recognise above. Both Doug[ie] Patience and Bernie Stocks used to play in sessions here in Aberdeen in the mid-late 1980s. Haven’t seen either of them in years - hope they are both well, if anybody here’s in touch with them.
Thanks for the link, Prof.

I don’t know about Doug, Kenny, but Bernie used to maintain this blog - http://ecotonal.blogspot.com - which hasn’t been updated for a while.
