From Dancing On Silver - Tim Collins
I heard this reel played by Frankie and Mairéad on their first album "Altan".
This was posted recently as Lavin’s from Tim Collins’ CD.
Also, not trying to be smart, just letting you know that there was an album Ceol Aduaidh before Altan.
Yes, there was Ceol Aduaidh, but it only featured Frankie Mairead. Altan was the first album with Mark Kelly and Ciaran Curran.
If I am not mistaken, Ciaran Curran is to be heard on Ceol Aduaidh, as well as Mairead’s brother Gearoid and the great Fintan McManus.
Larry Lavin’s Choice
There is a mistake in Geoff’s transcription. Tim Collins plays through each part only once, without repeats.
This is also on Frankie Kennedy and Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh’s 2nd album together (and the 1st as "Altan"), track 6, entitled "Tommy Peoples’". That setting is as follows:
T: Tommy Peoples’

|:FAdA BAdA|(3Bcd ed cAAG|FAdA BAdB|1 AFEG FDDG:|2 AFEG FDD2||
It’s not a Tommy Peoples composition though - it just came from his playing. Proof of this is in the fact that it appears in O’Neill’s under the title "Larry Lavin’s Choice" (edited a bit by me for easy comparison):
T: Larry Lavin’s Choice
