This is a version I heard from the playing of De Danann, from live recordings I have. I don’t think they ever recorded it on LP or CD etc., They always paired it with Hardiman the Fiddler.

This is an excellent tune for the pipes and sounds especially good on the flat pipes.

Maire Rua

It’s on one of the "Irish Folk Tour" double LPs which included "De Danann", and is paired, as you say, with "Hardiman". The Ulster singer Len Graham also has a fine song to this tune, called "The Wheels Of The World" - nothing to do with the reel of that name.

The Night Before Larry was Stretched

Traditionally this was composed by "Hurlfoot Bill". And it’s "The night BEFORE Larry was stretched. You can find the words in the Penguin Book of Irish Poetry.

A great tune on Anglo concertina we play it as The Wheels of the World but i was told Molly Roe the other night by whistle player Alex Monaghan . We go into Drops of Brandy.

I learned this version from Eamon O’Leary at a workshop at the boxwood festival in Lunenburg.Nova Scotia. Finally found a way to go from postscript to abc !

6/8 Moll Roe

I see lots of 6/8 jig versions of this tune with three bar phrasing, so lending a slip jig feel to it nonetheless. We also follow it with Drops of Brandy and then Hardimans.

Lovely piping version.
