The East Clare Reel

Lifted this tune from Conor Kean’s 1993 Tape, Cooley’s House.

It looks, to me, like a completely different tune to the East Clare I already found on this site?

There was some debate over the name, which might interest you, check it out here:

Sorry Conor, of course this is how I should have spelt your surname - Keane!

It’s the Noon Lasses

Well spotted Dow - thanks!

The East Clare, X:2

This is certainly a different tune from that which was originally posted; however, this is what The Teetotallers called this tune. I’m leaving it here for anyone who goes looking for it.
