Tune of the Day: Dandy Pat

Traditional Irish tune

This march tune is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. He writes: “This spirited air enjoyed no little popularity some fifty years ago when a song of that name to be found in Hyland's Mammoth Hibernian Songster was sung to it.”

The tune might be named after Irish-born Liverpool city councillor, publican and philantropist Patrick Byrne (1845–1890), whose colorful character earned him the sobriquet of “Dandy Pat”.
