Maple Leaf

Composed by Dublin whistle player Darach de Brun.
Quite often paired with "The Man Of Aran" - another of his compositions. The two tunes were recorded by the late (and much missed) Donncha O’Brien.

"The Maple Leaf was composed in 1976 for my own wedding. I had my reception in the Maples Hotel, Dublin, hence the name."
