SISTER’S REEL, THE. AKA and see “Mary McMahon,” “Micho Russell's Reel (4),” “Noel Hill's.” Irish, Reel (4/4 time). The tune has a variety of names. County Clare tine whistle player Micho Russell called it "Mary McMahon," while it was called both "Micho Russell's" and "Maureen Glynn's Fiddle" on Cronin & Burke's 1977 album. However, the most frequent titles are "Mary McMahon" (or, as on Martin Hayes' album, "Mary McMahon of Ballinahinch") or "Micho Russell's."
