LETTERKENNY FROLIC, THE. Irish, Reel. Ireland, County Donegal. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Collected in 1904 by Padraig Mac Aodh O'Neill from the playing of Andrew MacIntyre (1877-1959) of Ballymore, Donegal, and published in the Journal of the Irish Folk Song Society for that year with the note: "This tune is very well known all over Donegal." Francis O'Neill also noted the tune was well-known throughout the county at the time, however, Caoimhin Mac Aoidh (Between the Jigs and Reels, 1994) remarks that it is hardly played today.
