DRUNKEN REEL [2], THE. Irish, Reel (whole time). F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The "Drunken Reel [2]" was entered into the music manuscript collection of musician biography:Stephen Grier, of Gortletteragh, Co. Leitrim. Fr. John Quinn notes potential relatedness with "Allonby Lasses" from the 19th century Browne Family manuscripts (Lake District, Cumbria), which also was found by Hugh and Lisa Shields to be cognate with Canon James Goodman's "Touch Her if You Dare," from the latter's own mid-19th century music manuscript. Thus there may be a cognate relationship of reels in three 19th century musicians manuscript collections from County Cork and Leitrim in Ireland, and Cumbria in England.
