KILFINANE HORNPIPE, THE (Crannciuil Cill-Finain). Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC.

Source for notated version: "Cronin" [O'Neill]. Chicago fiddler Edward Cronin was born in Limerick Junction, County Tipperary in the 1840's. He was a skilled fiddler, highly regarded by O'Neill for his technique and large repertoire. However, Cronin could also be suspicious and difficult, and boasted that he 'never forgave nor forgot a slight.' Eventually he and O'Neill had a falling out.
