SHEPHERD'S DAUGHTER [1], THE. AKA and see “Dan Breen's Reel,” “John Egan's Reel (3),” “John O'Neill's Reel,” “Shepherd's Flock (The).” Irish, Reel. E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Miller & Perron): AA'BB (O'Neill). Known especially as a flute tune, this melody appears as an untitled reel in Breathnach’s Ceol Rince na hÉirreann, vol. II (1976, No. 230). According to Philippe Varlet, it was recorded in 1928 by Galway flute player Tom Morrison, and by fiddler Michael Coleman on a private recording. The first strain of “Dan Breen's Reel” is similar to the second strain of “Shepherd’s Daughter,” while the 'B' part of “Merry Sisters (The) (of Fate)” is identical with the ‘B’ part of “Shepherd’s Daughter [1].”
