Tune of the Day: Jimmy O'Brien's Reel
Traditional Irish reel
The only known appearance of this tune in print is in Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. The title most likely refers to Swinford piper James O'Brien (1823–1885), a source of many tunes for O'Neill.
