AKA and see "Bealltaine," "Broadway (The)," "Butchers of Bristol (2) (The),""Coimleangaide Miulleann-Cearr," "Dinny O'Brien's Hornpipe," "Flowers in May," "Geary's Hornpipe," "Gift (The)," "Greenwich Park (3)," "May Day (2)," "Phil Durkin's Favorite," "Princess Royal," "Raven through the Bog," "Rover through the Bogs (The)," "Sean Ryan's," "Shaskeen Reel (1) (The)," "Taylor's Fancy (2)," "Taylor's Hornpipe." Hornpipe or Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. "Mullingar Races" was popularized by the 1931 recording of Sligo fiddle players Paddy Kiloran and Paddy Sweeney, in New York. The "Bealltaine/May Day" title comes from P.W. Joyce's Old Irish Folk Music and Songs (1909), learned from his father in Limerick in the 1840's and heard again from the playing of Glenmalure, County Wicklow, miners in 1853. O'Neill originally published the tune as a reel. "Rover through the Bogs" is a related tune. See also the distanced Pennsylvania-collected version as "Five Miles Out of Town (2)."
