Re: Ganley’s

This was not composed by Josie McDermott, at least according to the sleeve notes accompanying his "Darby’s Farewell" CD.
Quote : "Ganley’s he learned from John Ganley, a fiddler from Castlereach, Co.Roscommon".

Hey Kenny, thanks for the correction! I was just referring to the info given on the tradschool page, but you have certainly the better source here. :~)

Re: Ganley’s

You’re welcome. Your transcription is as near as makes no difference to what Josie plays on the recording, but I have to say that this looks very much to me to be a setting of "Down The Broom" - it’s about 90% the same .
