SÉAMUS MEEHAN’S. AKA and see "Dunrobin Castle (4)", "Forfar Hunt," "Jimmy's Return." Irish, Reel (whole time). B Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Taylor/Tweed): AA’BB’. According to Karen Tweed the tune was not written by Meehan, but rather played by him. A version of the reel was published by Francis O'Neill as "Jimmy's Return," although O'Neill's source is unknown. However, the tune is an adaptation of the older Scottish tunes "Forfar Hunt" (Athole Collection, 1884) and "Dunrobin Castle (4)" (Caledonian Repository, 1848).
