You’ll find a recording by Padraig O’Keefe on The Rushy Mountain - Classic Music from Sliabh Luachre compilation CD, he plays it wwith The Rights of Man.
There is also a great version of Callaghan’s Reel on there, played by Denis Murphy and Julia Clifford…
Re: Callahan’s hornpipe
I just remember an amazing Sligo whistle player Carmel Gunning recorded a tune called Callaghan’s in her "Aroudn St. James’ Well," which seems the same as the one played by Padraig O’Keefe. This one is not posted here yet.
This is one of those hornpipes that would probably sound more exciting as a reel with a couple of minor changes here and there.
Jackie Daly did a nice version on Anglo concertina on hs first solo LP on Topic in 1977. It’s in G
Jackie Daly certainly recorded a "Callaghan’s" hornpipe on concertina, but it wasn’t this one.
