Mrs Dwyer’s

A quirky little barndance / hornpipe, taken from P.J. and Martin Hayes ‘The Shores of Lough Graney’.

I just listened to that album last night and noticed this tune, which I learned just a year ago from Pat O’Connor. It’s already here under a different title. https://thesession.org/tunes/6615

youtube’s caption: "Mrs. Ella Mae O’Dwyer, née Quill, from Athea in West Limerick (later of Ardgroom Co. Cork), playing a fling, followed by two reels, Toss the Feathers and Drowsy Maggie. Recorded in Cork in November 1982."
This hornpipe/fling (tagged under the title "Behind The Ditch In Pairc Anna", as referenced above at tunes/6615) is followed by a nice interview with Tony MacMahon, and the two reels.
