Kanturk

Composed by Jackie Daly, transcribed from No. 2 Patrick Street.

Re: The Kanturk

This lovely jig, supposedly composed by Jackie Daly, is very close to "Farewell to My Troubles," as it appears in O’Neill’s. Also, Liz Carroll has played a slow set dance version called "Fiddler Round the Fairy Tree." I wouldn’t call Jackie out on this, but…. it’s really the same tune.
