Composed by Máire O’Keeffe from Tralee, the fiddler on this recording.
Geantraí program segment from TG4 of the two of them playing this and Jackie’s tune, The Fly Fishing Reel, with Paul de Grae on guitar from 1996.

Re: McIllhatton’s Retreat

On the youtube video, the name of the second tune is spelled MacIllhatton. Since the tune was composed by Maura O’Keefe, perhaps she knows the correct spelling?
