Willie Reidy’s

From the playing of Johnny Leary in the mid 70s, recorded and transcribed by Pat Slattery. He also used to play this spritely, maybe quirky, slide in Gmaj and there is a setting in his book (#336). Billy Clifford plays a version close to that setting. Máire O’Keeffe (https://thesession.org/recordings/1607) plays a slightly different version (in G) on her Cóisir CD, where it is called Paddy O’Connell’s.
