This was a request by Lil Dog Turpy. It’s actually a jig not a march. There’s no facility here for marches as they aren’t common in the Irish tradition- at least not the tune variety. :-)
Oops, I meant to say "a march not a jig"
The reason why there is no tune type for "march" is that the term "march" says nothing about the time signature.
So, while all slip jigs are 9/8 and all polkas are 2/4, what are all marches? Some of them are 6/8, some of them are 2/4, etc.
I know, Jeremy, but I just wanted to get my little joke. :-)
Also, I should also have said that this tune was written by Blair Douglas who was a founder member of Runrig. His most famous composition is probably "Kate Martin’s Waltz".
Here’s a tune I posted earlier….. Please play today.

That’s a good idea.
I’ve played this on the Great Highland Bagpipes as a jig, just play it straight and fast and its rather nice!!
This is a rather wonderful version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=oqwZrVtZva8
