Tune of the Day: The Dublin Porter

Traditional Irish reel

This popular session tune, which also goes by the name “Dublin Porter House”, especially in County Kerry, used to be associated with the great Irish fiddler Padraig O'Keeffe. It was already known in County Donegal, Ireland, in the first half of the 19th century, as evidenced by the diary entry of a fiddler named William Allingham, who was employed as a customs officer but whose vocation was traditional music.
