DANDY DENNY CRONIN (Doncad Deas Ua Cronin). Irish, Reel. A Dorian (O'Neill/Krassen): A Major (O'Neill/1850). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (O'Neill/1850): ABB' (O'Neill/Krassen): AA'BB' (Glen). Paul de Grae believes that key signature should be two sharps instead of three, and suggests the tune compares with "My Love is on the Ocean (1)" and O'Neill's "Threepenny Bit (The)"[1].

Additional notes
Source for notated version : - Abram Sweetman Beamish, a native of the adjoining parish to that of Caheragh, County Cork, where Francis O'Neill was born. Although O'Neill got seven tunes from Beamish, only the "Fairhaired Boy" and "Tie the Bonnet" were previously known to him despite their common place of origin [O'Neill].
