Tune of the Day: The Rolling Reel

Traditional Irish reel

The first printed appearance of this tune is in Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. It is however very similar to another reel, titled “The Humors of Schull”, which had already appeared in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903).
