LACKEY'S REEL (Ríl Leaicí). AKA and see "Drummond Lasses (The)," "Sally Kelly (3)." Irish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Breathnach collected the tune from musician Tom Kearns. The tune is cognate with James Goodman's "Drummond Lasses (The)," albeit with the parts reversed. The second strain of "Lackey's" is cognate with the first strain of Edward Riley's "Duvil's Hornpipe" is also cognate (though transposed for the flute), but the second strains differ.
