KILLARNEY WONDER [3]. Irish, Schottische or Hornpipe (whole time). "The Killarney Wonder [3]", a version of "Bantry Hornpipe" AKA "Bantry Bay Hornpipe", was recorded in New York in 1929 by fiddler Packie Dolan (1904-1932), born in Aghadowry, near Ballinamuck, County Longford. He proved to be a popular musician in New York expatriate Irish music circles and recorded a number of tunes with famed Sligo fiddler Micheal Coleman (1891-1945). Dolan tragically died at age 28 one week before he was due to return to Ireland to live.
