18. Sailing into Walpole’s Marsh
This reel is from Co. Kerry. Denis Murphy is credited with telling this story of how the tune got its name: Two lads in a boat were fishing on a lake adjacent to a marsh, the marsh being part of a local landlord’s estate. So engrossed were they with their fishing, they never noticed the gentle breeze that ushered their craft right into the marshy area. When they realized where they were, one of the fellows said, “Well now, just think of the predicament we’ll be in if we’re seen on Walpole’s water.” Without another word, they rowed their way out of the marsh. In those days a heavy fine or even transportation was the price of such carelessness. One of the two fishermen was a fiddler and the other was a lilter. Earlier in the evening they had been lilting this reel but had no name for it. The two lads did avoid detection and later they christened their nameless reel "Sailing into Walpole's Marsh."
