Tune of the Day: The Steeplechase

Traditional Irish reel

This melody was famously recorded in New York for Crown Records by County Sligo fiddlers Paddy Killoran and Paddy Sweeney, who backed it with “Ah, Surely” in the early 1930s.

The tune was also published in O'Neill's Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies (1903), under the name “Carrigaline”.
