Peadar no doubt thought he came up with this tune, but please compare with “Bridgie Con Matt’s” slide recorded by Tim Collins and earlier by The Monks of the Screw in 1995 and apparently collected from Bridget Murphy, sister of Denis Murphy and Julia Clifford. This would predate Peadar’s composition by some years.

Notation on the Peadar O Riada web site

The links to some of Peadar O Riada’s tunes, at the address given above, are not working. I was unable to download the PDFs for the jigs Spórt/Fiach and The Slides, although some of the other tunes were accessible. I have contacted Peadar twice about this but no response (yet), Sean Quinn 28/10/2014.

Links Fixed

That was quick ! Peadar has fixed the links now. Thank you.
