I learned this great tune from Paul McGrattan’s excellent Keelwest album. He plays it in between The Dispute at the Crossroads and The Satin Slipper.
Check this against the Outdoor Relief that was posted recently. It’s a close relative.
O’Reilly and Murphy
Francis O’Neill got this from Jeremiah O’Reilly, hence the title "O’Reilly’s Greyhound." Breandan Breathnach published it as "Murphy’s Greyhound."
I’ve just found this tune is on a couple of recordings I received from Claddagh Records this morning. It’s got different titles.
"Tory Island" on Brian Rooney "From Leitrim to London."
"The Stone in the Field" on Mary MacNamara "The Blackberry Blossom." (probably misnamed)
It’s also in O’Neill’s as "The Missing Guest". Fantastic tune.
Played by Angelina Carberry and Martin Quinn as "The Strokestown"
Last tune in the set they play here:
What’s with the tittle "Kjm mjjjkh"? I thought for sure, as strange a name as that is, that there would be something in the comments section explaining it, but alas…
Kitty Hayes and Peter Laban playing the "low" version (in C);-
The Low Version
In C yes, but more the ‘lo’ version because we played it BAFE D3 E FABC d… in the video. We played the other, high, one too, if the mood took us.
is the version in D from the clip of Kitty Hayes and Peter Laban posted above.
Apart from being lower, there are some nice differences in the B part.

This is Gerry O’Connors first take on this tune, track 3c on the album "Last Night’s Joy".
