This tune is by whistle player Josie McDermott. The first part has an unusual shifting structure, which makes it very confusing to play.

Josie’s sleeve notes =
"… named after a missionary priest from the townland of Bocca, near Ballydreen, Co. Roscommon. On a visit home, he gave Josie a flute and in return asked that "You’ll make a tune for me". This is the tune."
Father O’Grady’s Visit To Bocca is actually Bockagh
The above link is from Google Maps and will show you the town-land that Father Peter O’Grady was born. He was born May 23 of 1907 to Peter Grady and Catherine Morrisroe, both from Bockagh, Ballaghadereen, Mayo which today is Roscommon. Ballaghadereen was in Mayo prior to the Irish Revolution and was then re-assigned/evaluated to be part of Roscommon.
Father Peter O’Grady was my granduncle.
