Geoghan’s (reel)

Submitted in response to a request for "Geeghan’s" - presumably an alternative spelling of "Geoghan’s". Also known as "The Glentown" and "Dennis Murphy’s".

Sorry, I should have said the request was for "Geeghans" - without the apostrophe.


I always thought Geoghan’s was the one that Will calls Eileen O’Callaghan’s. I notice that this transcription is the same as Gordon Turnbull’s that can be found labelled tentatively as "Geoghan’s?" on JC’s tune index. I’m wondering if he mixed it up with Eileen O’Callaghan’s aka Geoghan’s. Both are fantastic tunes. Anyone shed light?

It’s the same tune.
