KNOCKNABOUL (POLKA) , THE (Polca Chnoc na bPoll). AKA and see "Ask Our Dan," "Knocknabower Polka (2)," "Liam Browne's," "Sneem Polka." Irish, Polka (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. The alternate title "Knocknabower" is from a mis-print on the influential "Star Above the Garter" recording, and unfourtunatley has gained some currency at the expense of the correct title, "Knocknaboul." The second strain is shared with that of "Barley Grain (3) (The)," a reel in County Cork cleric, uilleann piper and collector James Goodmman's large mid-19th century music manuscript collection (vol. 3, p. 78). See also Goodman's "Greggs Pipes (2)" which contains similar melodic material.
