FITZGERALD'S HORNPIPE [1] (Cornphíopa Mhic Ghearailt). Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB.

See also the related "Humors of Tuamgraney."

Source for notated version: fiddler Mrs. Murphy, 1967 (Co. Cork, Ireland) [Breathnach].

Printed sources: Breathnach (CRÉ II), 1976; No. 305, p. 156.

Recorded sources: Copely Records 9-113 (78 RPM), Paddy Cronin (195?).
