MORRISON'S POLKA. AKA and see "Glenbeigh Hornpipe," "Curlew Hills Polka (The)," "McDermott's Barndance." Irish, Barndance. The tune (which usually goes by one of the alternate titles, above) was called "Morrison's Polka" in County Limerick flute player Paddy Taylor's 1969 LP called "The Boy in the Gap." The melody was indeed recorded by Sligo fiddler James Morrison in New York in 1935, as the title suggests, although he called it "Curlew Hills."
