McDANAUGH'S CLOG. AKA - "McDonaugh's Clog." AKA and see "Dan Lowry's," "McDermott's Hornpipe (4)." Irish, Clog. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. A composite tune: the first two parts are "Galway Hornpipe (1) (The)" (AKA "Baldheaded Bachelor (The)" while the last two are "Sligo Fancy (The)" (AKA "Flowers of Antrim (1) (The)"). It was recorded on a 78 RPM in this amalgamated version under the title "McDermott's" hornpipe in the 1920's by Sligo/New York fiddler Michael Coleman, and Paul Cranford (1997) thinks that either Fitzgerald or Angus Chisholm rearranged it from this source.

Winston Fitzgerald

Source for notated version: Winston Fitzgerald (1914-1987, Cape Breton) [Cranford].
