GRAND GATES OF ANNESBROOK, THE (Geataí Móra Annesbrook). AKA and see "Gardener's Daughter (1) (The)," "Gladstone's Bill," "Maid in the Cherry Tree (1) (The)." Irish, Reel. A Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune has the same general melodic contours and tonal elements as O'Neill's "Swallow's Tail (The)," Breathnach points out. However, it is the same tune as "Gardener's Daughter (1) (The)" printed by Frank Roche. Rev. John Quinn finds the tune in the 1883 music manuscript collection of County Leitrim musician Stephen Grier, set in the major mode, as "Gladstone's Bill."
