ROSCOMMON REEL (Ríl Roscomain). AKA and see "Crowley's Reel," "Master Crowley's (2)." Irish, Reel. E Minor (Breathnach): E Dorian (Cranitch). Standard tuning (fiddle). ABC. The tune is sometimes heard in a medley called "Miss Patterson's Slipper" paired with the reel “Master Crowley's (1)" (AKA - "Miss Patterson's Slipper)", which has led to some name confusion between the titles of the tunes. See note for "annotation:Master Crowley's (2)" for more.
