A fine reel composed by Josie McDermott. He plays it after Pat McGrath’s on "Darby’s Farewell". https://thesession.org/tunes/4003
However, I transcribed this setting from the flute playing of Steve Ducke, which is accessible to your ears here: http://www.tradschool.com/en/tunes/ganleys-reel
Maybe someone having the album at hand can submit Josie’s original setting… 🙂
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. :~)
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 .
