LOUGH ISLAND CASTLE. AKA - "Lough Isle Castle." Irish, Reel. Ireland, County Donegal. A Mixolydian. A popular reel in County Donegal whose parent tune Caoimhin Mac Aoidh (1994) identifies as the Scottish reel "Sleepy Maggie." See also the variants "Sean Sa Ceo/Sean Sa Cheo" and "Tullaghan Lassies." Larry Sanger suggests the title may be derivative of 'Loch Kyle Castle', finding an actual castle at Kyle of Lochalsh in the Scottish Highlands.
