SPORTING PADDY [3]. AKA and see "Boston Rattlers'," "Brian Boru's March (1)," “Colonel McBain's,” "Dan Sullivan's Reel," "Devonshire Reel (1) (The)," "Duke of Clarence Reel (The)," "General McBean," "Hobb's Favorite," “Johnny's Wedding,” "Miss Abercrombie's Reel," “Mother's Delight,” "Seán Frank," "Sporting Molly (1)." Irish, Reel. E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The title "Sporting Paddy" almost always refers to other reels, unrealted to "Sporting Paddy [3]." Kennedy's is the only printing found so far using the tile for this E minor reel, and it is perhaps a miss-hearing of "Sporting Molly" (although Kennedy did list "Sporting Mollie" as an alternate title.
