GNEEVGUILLA REEL, THE. AKA and see "Considine's Grove," "Considine's Groves," "Cronin of Kerry," "Dinny Ryan's," "Game of Love (The)," "Girls of Farranfore (The)," "Kerryman's Daughter (2) (The)," "Miss Brady," "Paddy Cronin's Reel (2)," "Pride of Rathmore (The)." Irish, Reel. West Coast (US) flute and concertina player Jack Gilder says that fiddler Joe Murtaugh maintained to him the the "Gneev(e)guilla Reel" was developed through the 'folk processing' of a set of "Pride of Rathmore (The)" and "Girls of Farranfore (The)" (tunes recorded together in the 1950s by Paddy Cronin). It seems that the tunes were at some point miss-remembered, and that only a fragment of the second tune survived, eventually becoming attached to the first as the third part of what became known as "The Gneeveguilla Reel." The title, by the way, is pronounced "Ginny-gulla".
