WEXFORD LASSES, THE ("Cailinide Ua Loc-Carman" or "Cailini Loca Gcarman"). AKA and see “Killoran's Reel (3)," “Last Night's Fun (3), "Wexford Reel (1)." Irish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (O'Neill/1850 & 1001): AA'BB' (O'Neill/Krassen). The alternate title “Killorans’s” comes its association with fiddler Paddy Killoran [1] (1904-1965), who recorded it after World War II accompanied by Mike Flynn, a flute player. On their recording it was called "Martin Wynne's." Breathnach prints it as “Last Night's Fun (3),” transcribed from the playing of Charlie Lennon & Mick O’Connor.
