Castlemahon Lasses

A woman from our local session brought this one out. A fun reel. She credited it to James McEnery from Limerick. Other than her, the one recorded source I can find in my admittedly-cursory search is at the site, which credits it to Ceol Rince na h’Eirieann, Vol. 5. Possibly where she got it?

I know this reel! It’s on Kevin Burke and Jackie Daly’s classic recording “The Eavesdropper”. They play it as London Lasses, but it’s different enough to have another name. Dow recently transcribed Burke & Daly version here: Virtually the same!
