X:1 T:Rakish Paddy B:Ceol Rince na hÉireann I, no. 145 N:translation of note in Irish: "This is originally Scottish. O'Neill says N:that Bremner published it in the year 1768 under the name 'Caper Fey' N:in the 'Second Collection of Scots Reels or Country Dances' and that N:it was usual for the correct version of the name, 'Cabair Fe/igh' or N:'The Deer's Horns', to be used in books of music for the Highland N:pipes ['don phi'ob mho/r']. He is wrong in saying that a version of N:this reel is 'Sporting Pat' [O'Neill's 'Irish Music' no. 297]. That reel N:is much closer to 'The Copperplate' than to 'Rakish Paddy' [O'Neill's N:'Waifs & Strays...', no. 269]. Other names for this tune are 'The Castle N:Street Reel' and 'Glastertown's Downfall'."
