Composed by Gerry Harrington, who originally recorded it on *The Smoky Chimney* with Eoghan O’Sullivan and Paul De Grae. My transcription is based on Desy Adams’ version that he plays on *Wooden Flute Obsession 3*, minus ornamentation.

Peter Horan Jig

My transcription from the playing of Michael McGoldrick at a workshop (from a recording made by a friend). He knows it as Peter Horan Jig.

Having gone to the effort of working out the tune from Gerry Harrington’s record I’ve just realised it is identical to McGoldrick’s version!
