Sliabh Russell

Sliabh Russell (or “Slieve Russell”) is a well known jig all over Ireland. I learned this tune from my friend Tom Delany. It was also recorded on many albums, such as Hugh & Colm Healy’s “Macalla na hÓige”, one of my favourite albums.

It is very often played after another great reel, “The Hare’s Paw”.

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