The first tune is a composition by the late Paddy Bawn O’Brien, a flute and melodeon player from Dublin. The second tune is a composition by Johnny McGreevy, a fine Sligo-style fiddler who passed away in 1990. Liz got the tune from Johnny and subsequently taught it to young Sheila, who in turn gave it to Séamus Connolly. Some have said the second part of the tune is not the original. Seems only Liz, Sheila and Séamus know for sure! The last
reel is #164 in Ceol Rince na hÉireann, Vol. 1, collected and edited by Breandán Breathnach. It is also known as Bennett's Favourite and The Great Eastern.
