BOG CARROT, THE. AKA and see "Captain Francis Wemyss." Irish, Reel. This is a two-part reel in the Sliabh Luachra region of the Cork/Kerry border, and is related to "Western Lasses (The)." However, it seems derivative of the Scottish strathspey "Captain Francis Wemyss." Jackie Daly added a third part and called the whole "The Bog Carrot." As "Game Cock (1) (The)/Coileach Comhraic (An)" it appears set as a slide in Breathnach's CRÉ IV (1996, No. 62).

Recorded source: Green Linnet SIF 1051, Jackie Daly, Seamus & Manus McGuire - "Buttons and Bows" (1984).
