TERESA HALPIN'S REEL. AKA and see "Corney Drew's Hornpipe," "Cornerhouse (2) (The)," "Dinny O'Brien's Reel (2)," "Dwyer's Hornpipe (1)," "Fitzgerald's Hornpipe (2)." Irish, Reel (2/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The tune is usually set as a hornpipe, as, for example, by P.W. Joyce ("Dwyer's Hornpipe (1)"), James Goodman ("Fitzgerald's Hornpipe (2)"), and Francis O'Neill ("Corney Drew's Hornpipe"). At least one recording lists the tune as "Micho Russell's" (referring to the 20th century Country Clare tin whistle player), but this name does not appear yet to be an alternate title.
Josie McDermott's "Trip to Birmingham (2)" is a similar, but probably not cognate, melody. However, Johnny O'Leary's "Cornerhouse (2) (The)" AKA "Dinny O'Brien's Reel (2)" has more points of correspondence to the "Teresa Halpin's Reel" family of tunes and can be considered cognate.
