The Drogheda Reel by Vincent McGrath

This tune was written by Mayo accordion and melodeon player, Vincent McGrath. It comes from Vincent’s solo album, Ó Cheartlár mo Chroí. Not too sure why it is listed under "Recordings of a tune by this name."

The structure of the tune is very simple but it certainly does a lot for me. I’m really fond of this one. Vincent plays this one in a set after another one of his compositions, Mary Alick’s, which I submitted a long time ago:

I’ll post what the sleeve notes say when I have them handy. I hope you like this one.
