This is probably the best known of tin whistle player Mick Dwyer's tunes. The title The Crosses of Annagh comes from the tradition, not from Mick (1940-1997). Apparently in the early '60s, after moving to the London area, Mick played the tune for Con Curtain, a Kerry fiddler also living in England. Clare fiddler Bobby Casey was also in London at the time. Eventually the tune took the name of a pub in County Clare. Other titles include Bobby Casey's, Con Curtain's and Dinny Ryan's Reel.
