Paddy “Nenagh” O’Brien

Another beautiful composition of Paddy "Nenagh" O’Briens like all his other tunes.

The New House

I’ll second that - his tunes always have great melody and every note has it’s place (you can’t leave any out!). On that last point do any of you have trouble getting the "B Bflat A" phrase in the first bar of part 2 or is it just me?

Sorry, I’ve re-checked, it should be the "C B Bflat" phrase!

Nifty tune

It sounds like lilting when played on a mandolin or mandola. It especially comes to hand beautifully on a CGDa instrument. Any Viola players out there?

Thanks for posting this Graham -

Always wondered where this tune came from.. …cheers!

Taken from the new Danú’s recording "Buan".
Pretty good jig, this version is more relaxing to play for whistles. :)
