I found this tune on a cassette with no cover and titles many years ago ( maybe 20 ). The unknown musician played this jig on the flute, before "the old flail" and after "the ship in full sail".

The first jig of the set was "the old flail", the second this one and the third "the ship in full sail".

Paddy Doory’s

LP was "Good Friends,Good Music" by "Boys Of The Lough". The flute players were Cathal McConnell, Patsy Hanly and John Joe Maguire. Gan Ainm is "Patsy Doory’s". Great flute tunes all three of them, yet nobody seems to have picked up on this one.

I think Kenny’s got it—this took me right back to my earliest days with the music, learning tunes off Boys of the Lough albums. Good Friends, Good Music came out closer to 30 years ago! Groan, I feel old… :o)

(GM - choose the "Paddy" option - other is a typo.)

Thanks a lot Kenny!! I’m very happy to know the title and the album where came from that jig. That set of jigs is one of the early ( first?) I learnt, and I love it. Thanks again.
I believe "Patsy Doory" is not a well known jig, becouse no one of my friends know it, and I recently played it in some sessions with irish musicians, but the didn’t know it too.

GM, I think Kenny might have meant "Paddy Doory’s", like he said the first time. The second one looks like a typo to me.


Correct, Dow - sorry, Gian Marco. I seem to have "Patsy" on the brain lately.

I occasionally try to play this whole set on flute in sessions. By the time I get to Patsy Doorhy’s, because it starts off down low in D, no-one is listening and I feel I’m fighting against the conversation. Boo-hoo…..
