Moran's Hornpipe/Raftery's Favorite/The Friendly Visit

Moran's Hornpipe/Raftery's Favorite/The Friendly Visit • trad. Irish 

We found the first two tunes in the last collection of Capt. Francis O'Neill, titled Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill collected Moran's in Chicago and noted that it was a favorite around Listowel in County Kerry; he learned Raftery's from the playing of Edward Cronin of Limerick Junction in North Tipperary.
