The transcriptions are raised up from B to D for D instruments, or any other key of woodwind (pipes, flute, whistle) you might want to play it in by following the D fingering given.

Jimmy Dolan - Longford uilleann piper

Jimmy Dolan - "Shady Lane"? - his take on this!

"Published on May 13, 2012
A Longford piper, related to old time pipemaker James Mulcrone; his family had a few pipers in it and pictured is the grave of one of them, Packie Dolan. Jimmy plays a ‘fling’ here ~ he learned to play from a local piper, Michael Keenan."

Can anyone offer more on Jimmy Dolan? If so, please do…
