AFTER THE SUN GOES DOWN (Tareis luide na gréine). AKA and see “annotation:Albany Beef,” “annotation:Buckley's Fancy,” “annotation:Buckley's Favorite,” “annotation:From Night 'Till Morn (2),” “Lord St. Clair's Reel.” Irish, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (O'Neill/1001 & 1850): AA'B (O'Neill/Krassen). “Buckley’s Fancy” is a related tune. The tune is apparently derived from William Bradbury Ryan's "From Night 'Till Morn (2)," which title, as Paul de Grae points out, "retains some of the original sense, and is typical of other O'Neill borrowings from Ryan"[1].
