Girls of Farranfore (The)

I learned “The Girls of Farranfore” as part of a set played by the great accordion player from Limerick Donie Nolan, which I recorded during the Russell Weekend 2013. It comes after another reel called “The Pride Of Rathmore”. They are also played together sometimes, but as a three part reel (“The Pride Of Rathmore” followed by the first part of “The Girls Of Farranfore”).

I am not really sure where I originally learned this tune though, I think it might have been from my friend Damian Werner.
