GLACAN'S REEL. Irish, Reel. Ireland, County Donegal. Collected by Padraig Mac Aodh O'Neill in 1905 from Donegal musicians and published in The Journal of the Irish Folk Song Society (1905, No. 2, 13). It is attributed to the playing of Padraic Glacan of Doe, whose hey-day was in the 1870's (Caoimhin Mac Aoidh, 1994). Mac Aoidh finds the second part to be similar to the turn of "Miss Thornton's Reel."
