From the recording Ainneoin na Stoirme / In Spite of the Storm
Prolific Tipperary composer and accordionist, Paddy O’Brien, composed the first tune in memory of his father. The second reel features in Petrie’s Complete Irish Music under the title ‘Temple Hill. A Cork Reel’, but without the 3rd part with which it is typically played today. The final tune was sourced from fiddler Paddy Ryan during a Scoil Éigse workshop in Sligo in 1990, with Paddy himself learning the tune from Ballinameen, Co. Roscommon fiddler, Paddy Kenny.
