Malbay shuffle

One of many great compositions by Diarmud Moynihan (hope I’ve got his name right) -piper with "Calico".

Thank you Kenny for posting the tune. Because I am not used to learning tunes by ear yet and also being lazy, I’ve been searching for the online sheet music of this piece.
I believe this tune will be played as "traditional" in the near future.
Did anyone hear the tune played in a real session?

Thanks are due to "Netallica" for posting the tune , not me !
haven’t heard it in a session yet, but I’m sure we will - a very fine tune, agreed.

great tune, nice and open, ideal for flute. Played regularly in sessions around Armagh and Tyrone.
