Lil’s Fancy

Based on the playing of Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich. There is another setting in Johnny O’Leary’s book (#194); the accompanying photo implies it was named for Johnny’s wife.
Padraig O’Keeffe had a polka called the Ballymac, which has a first part that is similar to this one. However, the turn drifts away somewhat, especially if the accompanying note regarding playing C#s is adhered to. See Pádraig O’Keeffe ITMA-Collins manuscripts, book 3: accordion.
