Although the song is short it is brilliant played fast and repeated 2 to 3 times. I first heard this as an example of a reel on my course in school and learned it that night. I was disappointed to find it couldn’t be found and so wrote up the ABC file myself. Hope it Helps!

Alright Flanno. Paddy here. Glad to see you on thesession. I seen this one in the music book aswell. A little tune I think with it moving from a string of d’s to a string of c’s. If you want a hand with anything to do with the music, don’t hesitate to ask me. And get other to do the same, right? (eg Keith Boland or whoever).


This is an old one, published in R.M. Levey’s first collection in 1858.
