CORN BOY, THE. AKA and see "Charlie Mulvihill's Reel (3)," "East Clare Reel," "Francie Donnellan's Reel," "Johnny McGreevy's Favorite," "McGreevy's Favorite." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB.

Source for notated version: Luke O'Malley, via Joan Coyne or Mary Carolan, students of New York fiddler and accordion player John McGrath (1900-1955, originally from County Mayo) [O'Malley]. Cornboy is a village in Co. Mayo near John McGrath's home in Rossport so it is likely that O'Malley's title was applied by McGrath.

Printed sources: O'Malley (Luke O'Malley's Collection of Irish Music, vol. 1), 1976; No. 28, p. 14.
