NEW POLICEMAN [1]. AKA and see "Belles of Tipperary (2)," "John Donnolly's Fancy." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The reel is related to "Miss Monaghan’s Reel" family of tunes, and persistently identified as a variant of the "New Policeman," although New York writer, musician and researcher Don Meade concludes that is a false identification. Belfast fiddler Sean McGuire called the tune "John Donnolly's Fancy."
