"Tradgirl" and "Longnote" in particular might like this one, as it’s a Fermanagh reel, and one of my favourites. It comes from the playing of Cathal McConnell, who played, and recorded it with "The Boys Of The Lough". It was mentioned in "The Hidden Fermanagh" but not included either in the sheet music or recording, which is a pity. I used to play it with "Ptarmigan", and it’s time it was more widely played.
