DAISY FIELD(S), THE (Páirc na Nóiníní). AKA and see "Irish Girl (5) (The)," "Philip O'Beirne's Delight," "Wild Irishman (3) (The)," "Field of Daisies." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. This reel is sometimes called "Coleman's Wild Irishman," owing to a it being a version of a tune that famed County Sligo fiddler Michael Coleman (1894-1947) recorded for Decca in 1936. The label listed two titles in the set he played, "O'Rourke's/The Wild Irishman," the second of which is substantially the "Daisy Field" tune. Fiddlers Packie Dolan (County Leitrim) and James Morrison (originally from County Sligo), both of whom were living in New York, recorded the reel in the 78 RPM era as "Irish Girl (5) (The)"; Dolan in 1929 and Morrison in 1935.
