MAN FROM BUNDORAN, THE. AKA and see "Humors of Kinvara (2) (The)," "Paddy Kelly's Reel (2)." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The tune is associated with fiddler Patrick "Paddy" Kelly of Bundoran, Co. Donegal, and, since the original title of the tune was at one time lost, it commemorates Kelly (who was the winner of the first All-Ireland fiddle competition). However, Kelly may have originally named it "Humors of Kinvara (2) (The)." Kelly's son is also a Paddy, and like his father is a well-known fiddler who still resides in Bundoran. (Kelly is not to be confused with other fiddling Paddy Kellys, notably the Paddy Kelly from County Galway, and another Paddy Kelly from County Clare).

Bundoran is a holiday resort town on the Donegal coast.
