Brid Harper’s (reel)

Could someone please post the .abc text in here for the reel known as Brid Harper’s? The link from this tune listed on Verena Commins & Julie Langan’s recording "Fonnchaoi" incorrectly leads one to the jig of the same name…

Thanks.

Another name

Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems to me that Vinnie Kilduff (1990) plays that jig under the title "The Rock On The Clyde"

Tuning

The Vallelys play this one in F on Callan Bridge, I think.

f.pellerin about the title - I just noticed that Philip Duffy also has it as "The Rock on the Clyde".

The Rock on the Clyde

The first setting above is pretty much the same as "The Rock on the Clyde" in the Bobby MacLeod book and marked as "Composed by Bobby MacLeod".
