This is a really nice Sliabh Luachra hornpipe. It has a bit of a Northumbrian feel, as many of the local hornpipes tend to, but I don’t know of any relations it has. Drishane is near Millstreet in the southern part of the region and is host to a beautiful castle. Interestingly it made it into O’Neill’s (#1631), a testament to its history as it was likely given by Edward Cronin, who would’ve left the area in the 1880’s.
Johnny O’Leary and Denis Murphy turn it over for Seamus Ennis:
Jack O’Sullivan turns it over as one of two Tom Billy hornpipes:
