For all Shanahans and Ramblers out there ~

~ whether by foot or language or both…

In O’Neills as

The Woodcock.

X:4 "The Woodcock" ~ O’Neill transcription 1903 / 1907

S: O’Neill’s Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies, 1903, tune #975, page 181
S: O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland: 1001 Gems, 1907, tune #193, page 46

O’Neill’s source for this transcription ~ Timothy Dillon, fiddler - & Chicago policeman

Shanahan’s Rambles, X:5

As played by Conal Ó Gráda, Benny McCarthy and Dave Sheridan - the Raw Bar Collective. This version seems to me to follow through the natural logic of the second and third parts.
