Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune has many names, usually from famous musicians who have played the reel. The "Ashplant" title is from Bulmer & Sharpley's volume, and is probably a mistake. The "Night in Ennis" title is from Vincent Griffin, from his Topic album of the same name. "Dicky Sherlock's" is the title the tune is under in Breathnach's CRE II, No. 200 (from John Loughran).
