Q:”Slow with cxpression”
S:”By Daniel J. Kelleher.”
S:P.D. Reidy music manuscript collection, London, 1890’s (No. 3)
N:”Professor” Patrick Reidy of Castleisland was a dancing 
N:master engaged by the Gaelic League in London to teach 
N:dance classes. He introduced “Siege of Ennis” and “Walls 
N:of Limerick” ceili dances and wrote a treatise on dancing.  
N:Reidy's source, Daniel Kelleher, was variously said to have been 
N:from Castleisland, Sliabh Luachra region, County Kerry, or from 
N:the native-Irish speaking region of Achadh Bolg, Múscraigh, in 
N:County Cork. Reg Hall (2017) also found a reference to Kelleher 
N:as one of the soloists who accompanied step dancing exhibitions 
N:at Gaelic League events in London between 1897 and 1901.  According 
N:to Hall, Kelleher was a young fiddle player active within the 
N:Gaelic League. His name is attached to thirteen tunes in Reidy’s collection.
