JOHN McKENNA'S [2]. AKA and see "Happy Days of Youth (1)." The tune was recorded by flute player John McKenna (1880-1947) for Decca in 1934 (paired with "Colonel Rogers"), accompanied by Michael Gaffney on banjo; both originally were from County Leitrim. In fact the tunes became so associated with the flute player's name that they have often simply been referred to as "John McKenna's" or "McKenna's Reels."
