Jim Donoghue’s (reel)
Source: Kevin Crawford - "D Flute Album"
Notes: with variations
A great reel Gian. I think John Carty’s version on the fiddle is pure magic where he plays it innumerable times but each one is that bit different so that one could almost listen to it forever!
This was the pet tune of the late Jim Donoghue, a Sligoman renowned for his playing of the Clarke’s tin whistle.
Jim Donoghue Composition infact!
On the notes of Micheal O’Raghallaigh’s "Inside Out" album, he says that Jim Donoghue composed this tune. Great tune altogether!
Jim Donoghue’s is the first tune played in this set: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=RokME3ZWOyo and its a great inspiration to make me sit down and learn the tune!
It’s also on Danny O’Mahony’s In Retrospect. For some reason it didn’t link. Superb.
Here’s Jim Donoghue playing the Templehouse and Cooley’s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOLIJUq9Lg0
Ah, someone has extracted this track from "Come West Along The Road". Nice!
A while back I’ve posted his setting of Cooley’s BTW… :)
Jim Donaghue playing Jim Donaghue’s?
Does anyone have a recording of Jim Donaghue playing Jim Donaghue’s reel? I love his style and would love to hear his own take on the tune that bears his name.

Hi Pat, can be seen on YouTube at this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOLIJUq9Lg0
I’m sure Jim Donoghue’s reel will be played more than once at the Fleadh this year in Sligo.
There is a nice flat-picked version of this on guitar on Kris Drever’s album Black Water, played after Rodney’s Glory.

Here’s a more generic, session-friendly version.
