Leitrim multi-instrumentalist Joe Liddy composed over 100 tunes which were published in 1981 by Comhaltas Ceoltoirí Eireann in the book Joe Liddy – The Leitrim Fiddler.
This collection reveals Liddy as an inventive composer with his own distinctive style. Whilst the majority of his tunes are either undiscovered or played in small circles, there are a few tunes which have been recorded several times and as such are in general circulation in the tradition. These tunes include Palmer’s Gate, The Red Bee
and The Kilcloon
