Youghal Quay

Just in case anyone was wondering…this town in Ireland is pronounced "yawl", is located in Co. Cork, and Sir Walter Raliegh was once its mayor.

This is a Paddy O’Brien composition, recorded by him with Seamus Connolly on their "Banks of the Shannon" EP. It is not the same tune as "Miss Johnson’s/Johnston’s/Johnstone’s."

This reel was a favorite of the late fiddler Johnny Cronin, who played it in virtually every session in the later years of his too-short life.

…In hop jig time, I should say, not mazurka.

This setting transcribed from a video by Patrick Orceau, Laura Byrne and Josh Dukes. It’s such a quirky, lively tune. The ornaments are just an attempt to catch the ones that seemed necessary.

Re: Youghal Quay

The second setting from justjim belongs with Miss Johnstone , https://thesession.org/tunes/2411 , not here. There’ll you find a link to a video clip of Patrick Orceau etc.

Re: Youghal Quay

Just to make it clear, this is not a Paddy O’Brien composition.

In this link you will see all the ABCs of all the tunes in the collection The Definitive Collection of the Music of Paddy O’Brien 1922-1991

For the compositions you will see:

C:© Paddy O’Brien

But for the tunes that are not compositions and are arrangements of Paddy O’Brien you won’t see that. You will see this instead:

H:arr. Paddy O’Brien

And this is what happens with this tune.
