Also known as Neil Of The Glenties’ Highland Fling.
Neil Of The Glenties has been added to 8 tunebooks.
This is a Highland [ strathspey is the nearest time-signature ] , composed by Ed Reavy. An unidentified musician from the USA played this at a Willie Clancy week concert in the 80s. He preceded it with "Lovely Bannion" , the last tune I posted.
Both of these highlands were transcribed for me by Malcolm Reavell, although I’ve made one or two minor changes after listening to the recording again.
