Chase the Squirrel

This is the first Tune played in ‘The Squirrel Set’ played by ‘The Spailpíns’ in the 1960’s, taken from a reel to reel tape recording that I had. The other two tunes published earlier, are ‘Gathering Nuts’ & Squirrel’s Hornpipe’. I’m not to sure if these are the original names of these tunes, but it was what they named them when they introduced the set.

Chase the Squirrel

This tune can be found, untitled, in Geraldine Cotter’s Tin Whistle Tutor (1985).
