SLIPPER HORNPIPE, THE (Crannciuil na/an Troigin). AKA - “Silver Slipper (The).” Irish, Hornpipe (whole time). D Major (O’Neill/1001): D Dorian (O’Neill/Krassen). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was recorded in 1929 by Dan Sullivan’s Shamrock Band under the title “The Silver Slipper.” County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman, who collected in the mid-19th century, entered a version of the tune in his music manuscript collection (vol. 1, p. 58) as "Dublin Hornpipe (5) (The)."

Additional notes

Source for notated version: - Francis O’Neill credited his version of the melody to patrolman and fiddler Timothy Dillon, originally from County Kerry (Philippe Varlet points out that several of the members of Dan Sullivan’s Shamrock Band were also from Kerry).
