Or Paddy Fahey’s?

I know this must be here, but I looked through all the Faheyses and didn’t find it. I haven’t come across it on any CDs either. Thanks…

Source ?

So where did you come across it ?

Paddy Fahey’s

One source is Bulmer & Sharpley Vol 2 No33 where it is called PaddyFahey’s No2. Below is a transcription of how the tune has evolved with me.

I added the "e" and the #2 - I learned this off a cell phone recording from a lesson. Thanks for the Bulmer & Sharpley tip and your take on it!

a lesson with Kevin Burke - he should get credit for remembering it

i can’t believe this isn’t here already. It’s on Brendan McGlinchey’s "Outlet" album, for a start, I’m sure.

Is that the "Music of a Champion" album? I’ve been looking for that for ages - totally unattainable unfortunately

that’s how I pronounce "unobtainable" - werd.

I’m not so sure about my previous statement. I need to play along with the abcs you’ve posted, airport. I’m sure the Fahy’s reel McGlinchey recorded is in Bulmer & Sharpley, but I’m not sure this is it. I’ll get back to you.
I did mean the "Music Of A Champion" album. I’ll see what I can do and will be in touch.
