CAILÍNÍ IN FHACTORY (The Girls of the Factory). Irish. At Chieftains' piper Paddy Moloney's wedding, the music was performed by Seán Ó Riada, who arrived late carrying the wedding present of a huge rug. Paddy had asked Ó Riada to play the organ and had paid off the church's regular organist in anticipation, and despite the lateness Ó Riada sat down to play as the bride was escorted into the church by her father to the rousing strains of...not the "Wedding March" but "Cailíní in Fhactory" (The Girl of the Factory). Moloney was the only one who knew the title, and said of Ó Riada, "That terrible man just looked at me and winked" (Glatt, The Chieftains, 1996).
