Tune of the Day: The Fairy Hurlers

Traditional Irish reel

This Irish reel is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. In his book Between the Jigs and Reels, Caoimhin Mac Aoidh explains that O'Neill's source was a fiddler named Joe Timoney, known in Donegal as Joe Phaedar Sheain O Tiomanai.
