I’m not familiar with the recorded version that generated the request for this tune, but there are a few printed versions floating around.

You can use rolls instead of triplets. In the third bar of Part A you can grab the high d instead of the low one: |G2 BG dGBG|. And in the B Part, if AGEG throws you off for getting back to the d, play it AGED instead.

Wonderful reel, usually played with the Belfast Hornpipe. There’s a superb recording by the Dubliners. Can’t miss it.

Never heard it played with the Belfast at my session.

Or any I’ve been to either…

But, he did say ‘Dubliners’…which could be a symptom…

Does anyone know who Tim Maloney (Moloney) was or where he was from or what instrument he played? Just curious!

We usually play it with "Off in the Morning"

Here’s this tune played by Padraig Mc Govern (uilleann pipes), Sabina Mc Cague (fiddle), Melissa Mc Cague (fiddle), James Mc Govern (flute) and Seán Mc Elwain (guitar). It’s the 2nd tune.

Off in the Morning https://thesession.org/tunes/1737 has a similar feel alright: it’s a ‘hornpipey reel’ like this one. No wonder it is ‘usually played with the Belfast Hornpipe’ in jorge’s parts.

for an enhanced experience, play all the D’s and E’s as d’s and e’s…

NB: the 2nd tune on the youtube link above starts at 1’07"

I love this reel. It sounds great on the Tin Whistle. I first heard it through The Dubliners. They play it as a set with The Belfast Hornpipe played first and then into Tim Maloney’s. Check out this video if you would like to see how I play this set https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjjflFxJX58


Does anyone have chords to this ??

Tim Maloney’s, X:3

Very close to the two previous settings but with a couple of triplets and a few of the rolls replaced by melodic passages.

Re: Tim Maloney’s

this reel was played at our session last night - I hadnt heard the tune before and thought it was an unfamiliar version of Miss McLeod’s. Anyone else hear the similarity?

Re: Tim Maloney’s

Yes, Christy, I can also hear the similarities. Especially when you also compare with the version of Mrs. McLeod’s that’s called "Garrett Barry’s". https://thesession.org/tunes/3434
