Track 5. The Dance At The Manor (Part 2) - Reels - The Limestone Rock / The Otter’s Holt / The Longford Tinker

This set of reels begins with The Limestone Rock – a two part reel, unusual in that each part is played only once. It is thought that the title refers to the limestone rocks of the area of County Clare called the Burren.

The second tune is a two part reel credited to the late Clare fiddler Martin ‘Junior’ Crehan. This precedes the three part reel, The Longford Tinker, which is a clear variation of the Scottish reel, Jenny Dang The Weaver.
