I’ve written out the tune with triplets on the F in the second part. The F could also be rolled. Switching between triplets and rolls could make a nice effect.

What to pair with Last Night’s Fun

Does anyone have a recommendation on tunes to pair with Last Night’s Fun? I’d like to add this one to my set list but it needs a mate! Thanks!

Mike Rafferty recorded the Abbey Reel after this tune. https://thesession.org/tunes/477
It seems the combination of these two tunes is not his invention: they were already paired by Tulla Ceili Band. Anyway, that’s a lovely set of single reels.

Last Night’s Fun - - Killoran’s Reels

On Joe Ryan’s An Buachaill Dreoite, track 7 this is the first of two reels titles "Killoran’s Reels". Anyone know what the 2nd one is?
