about

I learned these tunes from the playing of Alan Morrisroe, who got them from Paddy Joe Tighe, a melodeon and accordion player from Ballyhaunis, Co. Mayo. Paddy’s mother, Kate Naughton Tighe (1910 – 1997), was also a melodeon player and would have played these tunes regularly when Paddy was growing up. Thady Stenson was a flute player from between Kilkelly and Ballyhaunis. The tune is most likely derived from one of the marches which were played by fife bands throughout the region.
