Kilcummin (The)

“The Kilcummin” is a tune I learned from a session in McGann’s Pub with Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. They played it as a jig, but I think it is also played as a slide. Kilcummin is in Co. Kerry, near Killarney.

This reel also goes by the names “John Blessing’s” and “O’Connell’s Reel”, which is the oldest name I could find.
