OUR BOYS . AKA and see "Monaghan Switch (The)," "Píobaire Mháire Bháin." Irish, American; Reel. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The reel is called "Píobaire Mháire Bháin" in Teelin, County Donegal, and, according to Mick Brown, was lilted by Peadar O'Beirne (Peadar Johnny Johndai) in 1948 for Radio Teilin Eireann. The first strain of the reel is shared with the Irish "Monaghan Switch (The)."
The reel has no musical relationship with the similarly titled "Monaghan Twig (1), but is quite similar to "Monaghan Twig (2)" printed in Kerr's Merry Melodies vol. 4 (No. 169).
