[r-t] Cinques focus

Nirerin looks like a nice method in its own right.  Is it possible to get a
peal composition out of it, what calls would you use, or is it only feasible
spliced with Erin?

Sorry, just catching up on what's been happening. I am rather thrilled to
see some new Cinques being rung -Alan Reading has put together a cyclic
composition of spliced "Nirerin" and Erin Cinques -
http://www.bb.ringingworld.co.uk/view.php?id=320841. it's pleasing to see
some 11-bell innovation rather than falling back on the tired old diet of

Nirerin Cinques is a rather nice principle with 10-change sections:
9.E.9.E. = 241638507E9, leading to double-dodging in 3-4, 4-5,
5-6 and so on.  The method has glide symmetry, well employed here, and it
looks like the composition suitably and simply exploits the regular coursing
musical properties.

I'm a bit puzzled about the choice of name, though.  "Nirerin" as a word
seems to be a palindromic play on "Erin", but palindromic symmetry is
something that the method NIrerin lacks?
