The Striking Clock
From Endeavour by Gráda. It’s their composition, and not the easiest tune in the world to play. First heard it at a session in Sydney.
this is the tune i had mistake for pint of reference
Check this out
it’s a beautiful tune, i love it!
there’s a lovely step coreography for this slip jig (sorry i’m a dancer too:)
So is this one tune called "Pint of Reference" or is that the set? Also, I put "Within a Mile of Dublin" as an alternate name, since a guy on youtube calls it that.
No, Pint of Reference is a different tune. I posted it on this site - you can search for it. Within a Mile of Dublin is also a totally different tune.
Ok cheers. Great tune anyway
On “Riches of Clare” CD…
… Tola Custy, Karol Lynch and Paul Gerry have a fine rendition of this tune missnamed Pint of Reference.
(the CD is here and still avalaible for free ! https://thesession.org/recordings/4959)

Alan Doherty wrote the tune, and we had a great tutorial on it in 2013 at Ceol Aneas, New Zealand’s only Irish Music Festival. Thanks Alan.
