Paddy from Portlaw

features as opener on Brian McNamara’s "Fort of the Jewels". Brian Rooney recorded this on "The Godfather". a printed version is to be found in O’Neill’s "Music of Ireland" No. 764. I heard this tune first from Sabine Pichler and Anna Rabova during the Joe Mooney Summer School in Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim in 2005.
