SPORTING DAYS OF EASTER [2], THE (Leathanta Spraoi na Cásca). AKA and see “Flurry Reel (The),” "Lady's Cup of Tea (2)," “Micho Russell's Reel (5)," "Ned McCormack's.” Irish, Reel (whole time). D Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Source Micho Russell had no name for it, and Breathnach gave it the name of a tune he found in a manuscript collection (only the first strain was the same, however). Arty McGlynn called the reel “Micho Russell’s” on his album “Lead the Knave.” O'Neill's "Merry Days of Easter (1) (The)" is a similar title, but a different melody.
