Corney Drew’s

Learned this from Kevin Rowsome at a piping workshop. I think it’s in O’Neill’s.

Liam O’Flynn plays it as a set with "The Tailor’s Twist" on Planxty’s "The Woman I Loved So Well" album, but it doesn’t show up under that name in the Spotify tune list for the album. I heard someone say that it’s named as the title tune of the album, but I haven’t been able to verify this.

I said "plays", because Liam lives on through his wonderful music. Notice his lovely, spare regulator playing on this track.
