Back to Mother's Delight


MOTHER'S DELIGHT (Aoibhneas na Máthar). AKA and see "Malloy's Favorite." Irish, Reel. Ireland, County Donegal. D Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB (Breathnach): AABB (Taylor). A three-part tune he called "Mother's Delight" was recorded by fiddler James (Jim) Clark (1887-1938) of Drumlish, Co. Longford, in October, 1928 in New York. That version was also recorded by Michael Coleman on a privately made disc. For that tune setting, see the entry for "Malloy's Favorite."

A two-part version played by Donegal fiddler John Doherty has become known under the "Mother's Delight" name via recordings by Paddy Glackin (on his eponymous first 1977 LP, played on the viola) and others. Doherty's setting was published in The Northern Fiddler under the mistaken name "The Cameronian Reel" (see note for "Cameronian Reel (3) (The)"). The family of tunes that includes "Colonel McBain", "Sean Frank" and "Johnny's Wedding" is seemingly related.

Sources for notated versions: flute player and fiddler Peter O'Loughlin, 1966 (Kilmaley, Co. Clare, Ireland) [Breathnach]; Jim Donoghue (b. 1910, Drimacoo, Monasteraden, County Sligo) [Flaherty].

Printed sources: Breathnach (CRÉ II), 1976; No. 240, pp. 124-125. Feldman & O'Doherty (The Northern Fiddler), 1979; p. 67 (appears as "Cameronian Reel"). Flaherty (Trip to Sligo), 1990; p. 180 (appears as "Unknown"). Taylor (Where's the Crack), 1989; p. 6.

Recorded sources: Gael-Linn CEF060, "Paddy Glackin" (1977). Cois na hAbhna Archive CNH 010 CD, 2015, "Maestro," Bobby Casey and Joe Ryan. See also: https://www.irishtune.info/tune/2896/
