The One After It

This has been a favorite jig of mine that I have heard played locally for eons by flute player Vinnie Cronin. It was elusive to find out the name of the tune because Vinnie never seemed to know which one I was referring to when asked. Eventually he knew which tune I was taking about and said he called it “Monks Of The Screw.” I tried putting a query to Itrad years ago and all that resulted was a recording by that title. My friend John Sherry had it and made me a copy (great recording BTW) and I’m happy to say I finally have the tune.

Posted here is the transcription from that recording.

Or what I meant was there was a band by that name. The title of the recording is Brathar Na NÓl.

I believe this is the jig Liz Carrol and Tommy Maguire recorded as Paddy Kelly’s. Their version is a little different, though.

The One After It, X:2

Learnt this version from Clare Egan at the Willie Clancy down in Milltown Malby last year as ‘Eddie Kelly’s’ . I quickly realised this wasn’t the name the tune was commonly known by so I’ve been searching for another name for it since - thank you! I fell in love with this tune as soon as I heard it. This version is similar to the version Liz Carroll and Tommy Maguire recorded as ‘Paddy Kelly’s’.

Eddie Kelly’s

I have since come to understand this is an Eddy Kelly composition. I’ve been calling it “Eddie Kelly’s” ever since.

The One After It, X:3

July 24, 2016. I was taught this version #3 as “Paddy Kelly’s Jig” yesterday at a tune workshop in Bristol. Lovely tune, well worth learning but probably not the easiest to absorb by ear in one sitting!

Re: The One After It

Yes, you’re right, fidicen, and I’ve been calling it “Paddy Kelly’s Jig” now too. It was composed by Paddy Kelly.

Eddie Kelly’s jig #1

It is more probable that this tune is a composition of Eddie Kelly as Eilis Crean, who knew Eddie, recorded this tune as the Eddie Kelly’s jig #1 on her album Searbh Siucra
Whatever the name, what I hear on Eilis’ album is the same tune that I learnt from the playing of Edel Fox, Neill Byrne and Josh Dukes on that video and that I use to identify now as “Aherne’s Egg”, and this tune differs slightly from the one of the OP, especially in the second part. Concerning this last part of Aherne’s Egg, it seems that there is another setting written by Finbarr Dwyer, so please look at this comment on that tune here
