This is another great reel composed by American uilleann piper Jerry O’Sullivan. An Feirin means The Gift in Irish, and this was the title of his last CD. It is a fantastic tune for pipers, I had requested the tune, but thought I would not be so lazy and learn it from his CD. Enjoy.

Wonderful tune! I may just have to adapt it for the Highland pipes… I really like this one! Thanks for posting it!

An Feirin, X:2

This tune drives like a juggernaut! The low D and trebled d notes in the B-part are essential to the beat.
