JAUNTING CAR [2]. Irish (?), Reel (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The reel appears as simply "Irish Reel" in George H. Coes' Coes Album of Jigs and Reels (1876). By the time it was published in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) seven years later it had acquired the title "Jaunting Car [2]." Coes attributed the tune to Billy O'Neil

Fr. John Quinn finds similarities between the first two strains of Breathnach's "Ril na hAontachta" ("Union Reel (2)"), printed in Ceol Rince na hÉirreann vol. 3 (1985), parts reversed.
