CONNIE WALSH'S SLIDE. AKA and see "The Cúil Aodha Slide." Irish, Slide (12/8 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Connie Walsh was a Sliabh Luachra fiddle player who emigrated to America. Source O'Leary remembered only this one slide: "...he used always play that tune before--in any dance that was his first and only slide, I'd say, he had. He hadn't many more of them I'd say" (Moylan). The accompaniment begins on the subdominant chord.

Source for notated version: accordion player Johnny O'Leary (Sliabh Luachra region of the Cork-Kerry border) [Moylan].
