Tune of the Day: Gilleonan MacNeil, Ciosmul

Pipe march by Roddy Campbell

Today's tune was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The title is the name of a historical figure, about whom the author writes:

He was a chief of the MacNeils of Barra and a member of the Council of the Isles formed in 1545 to treat with Henry VIII. The name became popular among the MacNeil chiefs but fell out of favour in later centuries.
