T:The Donegal Doughertys
C:Ed Reavy
Z:Joe Reavy
N:In memory of the many talented Dougherty families. First, of course there
N:was Neil and his son John, who were from the Glenties. Neil, a very close
N:friend of Ed's and a gifted fiddler, was a special talent. Ed praised Neil as
N:"a little known master of his trade." The tune also comemorates Charlie
N:Dougherty and his wife Mary ("dear people"), no relation to Neil. And
N:finally the tune recalls John, the tinker, and his musical family from the 
N:same region of the Glenties.
