Paddy from Cork
Back to Paddy from Cork
PADDY FROM CORK. Irish, Jig. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The earliest appearance of the tune in print is in Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman’s mid-19th century manuscripts. Goodman (1828-1896) was an uilleann piper, and an Irish speaker who collected locally in County Cork and elsewhere in Munster. The melody is related to O’Neill’s “Paddy in London (1)” and Joyce’s “Carrickmacross.”
