MISS FARR’S REEL. AKA and see "Ivy Leaf Reel (2)," "Miss Faw's Reel." Irish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. O’Neill (1922) remarks: “It may be remarked that (source) Mr. Dunne was a farmer of the townland of Kilbraugh not far from Thurles, Tipperary. From his wonderful repertory of dance tunes, generously contributed some years ago, many have been selected.” A version of the tune appears under the similar title "Miss Faw's Reel" in Rev. Luke Donnellan's c. 1909 manuscript collection.
