The Edenderry

Yes, there’s another reel on here called "The Edenderry" (and it’s duplicated, to boot), but this one is different—and much better. (I’m the one who posted the original from O’Neill’s.) My obsession with Edenderry, Co. Offaly led me to an image of this tune from Sean Ryan’s collection of his compositions "The Hidden Ireland." Whether or not the town (or the other two in the North) is the namesake, I don’t know.
