Ladies’ Pantalettes (The)

I don’t remember when I learned The Ladies’ Pantalettes, but it is a very common session tune. I associate this reel with concertina maestro Noel Hill, who plays this tune in one of my favourite videos ever (see below, it’s the first tune after the slow air).

In the sleeve notes of John Carty’s album’s “Last Night’s Fun”, it says that, according to flute player Jack Coen, this reel was composed by Tommy Whelan, a flute player with the Ballinakill Ceili Band, who named the tune for a neighbor’s animal.
