Tune of the Day: The Old Walls of Liscarroll

Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this tune is in P.D. Reidy's music manuscript collection (London, 1890s). ”Professor” Patrick Reidy of Castleisland (County Kerry, Ireland) was a dancing master engaged by the Gaelic League in London to teach dance classes. Tune collector Francis O'Neill (1922) remarks:

There can be little doubt that Mr. Reidy's title was well deserved, because his fame as a dancer and dancing master in early life in North Kerry was successfully maintained later in life in London, where he was esteemed as an authority on the subject.
