about

The first tune is a version of ‘Molly Bán’ that I learned from a recording of Paddy Canny’s. ‘Colonel Irwin’ was written by Turlough O’Carolan (1670-1738) and can be found in Carolan: The Life Times and Music of an Irish Harper by Donal O’Sullivan (tune no. 60). Colonel John Irwin (1680-1752) was High Sheriff of Sligo and resided at Tanrego House on Ballisodare Bay. I heard a recording of Paddy Cronin playing this tune at a Handed Down lecture in Scartaglen, Co.Kerry. Handed Down is a series of talks and concerts based on the music of Sliabh Luachra and is the brainchild of P.J. Teahan.
