X:1 T:Oak Stick [3], The M:6/8 L:1/8 R:Jig S:”by Daniel Kelleher, Clonough, Castle Island, Co. Kerry.” N:The jig follows “Old Walls of Liscarrol” in the MS. and N:seems to have been 2nd tune in medley. 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.
