Páití O’Leary’s

This jig is associated with Johnny Leary and it’s named after one of his uncles. It does not appear to have much currency outside Sliabh Luachra, but it deserves it. This setting is based upon Paudie O’Connor’s excellent recording on The County Bounds https://thesession.org/recordings/4407

Páití O’Leary’s, X:2

This setting is based on the Monks of the Screw Trio - Paudy Scully’s playing. It was listed as Gan Ainm on their CD but it clearly closely related to Páití O’Leary’s. It differs sufficiently to clash in the 3rd and 4th bars with, say, Paudie O’Connor’s setting which is closer to Johnny O’Leary’s.

"Monks of the Screw Trio" - sounds somewhat sinister. What a strange name for a group. And I think tune is a bit monotonous (just me).

Re: Páití O’Leary’s

The Monks of the Screw was an 18th century Dublin drinking club and the "screw" was the corkscrew.
