Courtown Harbour

From the album "The Mulcahy Family." They follow this jig with Charlie Lennon’s "Smiling Bride Jigs" (The Smiling Bride & The Handsome Young Maidens).

The Mulcahy Family is from West Limerick: Mick Mulcahy (accordion) and daughters Michelle (harp, concertina) and Louise (uilleann pipes, flute). This is one of the best traditional albums I’ve ever heard.

Courtown Harbour

I just received my own copy of the Mulcahy Family CD. The liner notes state that this tune was composed by fiddle player Jimmy McHugh who lives in Glasgow.

Nice tune but inaccurate 2nd last bar - should be |B/c/dB AFE|

Dr Dow

Do you mean the 3rd last bar?
