Henrik Norbeck’s version

The above transcription is from the Henrik Norbeck collection and differs only in a few notes from the version submitted.
Personally, I prefer Tanya’s version as it is closer to what Paddy O’Brien actually wrote.

Paddy O’Brien’s daughter, Eileen O’Brien Minogue has produced a book of Paddy’s compositions entitled "The Compositions of Paddy O’Brien" published 1992 by J.D.C Publications Ltd.,
36 Westportland Street, Troon, Ayrshire, Scotland, KA 106AB.

There are many excellent tunes in it. I don’t believe Paddy composed a bad one.

God I love this tunes, it is dead set one of my favourites and Paddy O’brien wrote some awesome tunes. Now this is most definately a classy tune.

Paddy O’Brien

He named Hanley’s tweed after he won a "world" ceili band competition with the Ormond Ceili Band, the prize? Rolls of tweed from Hanley’s!
