Paddy Fahey’s

This is a Paddy Fahey composition from Eileen O’Brien’s album, "The Fiddler’s Choice" track no. 2. I couldn’t find it posted here.

I really love this tune but it is really difficult on flute. I may have to play it on my Boehm flute.

This is Maria Holohan’s setting from her Paddy Fahey dissertation where she indexed the tune, Reel No. 27.
