CURRAGH RACES [2], THE. AKA and see "London Lasses (2)," "Maid of Aberdeen (The)." Irish, Reel. E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB'. O'Neill (1922) remarks: "In former O'Neill publications John McFadden's setting of this reel was given preference (see "Curragh Races (1)"), being in the florid style of that famous traditional fiddle (ed.-originally from County Mayo). The version here presented memorized from lilting by the editor in schoolboy days, may not be devoid of interest especially as the arrangement is suited to the scales of the Highland or Irish warpipes." A version of the tune was entered into the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of Canon biography:James Goodman as "Maid of Aberdeen (The)."
