The Gallant Tipperary Boys

From the playing of Jacky Daly

Posted by .

Also known in England as The New May Moon , in old tune books from 1700s

O’Neill’s version in D

X:2 is the version in O’Neill’s transposed from C to D. I think this four-part setting is particularly nice in either key. The tune is in the "Jigs" section of the book, #894.

Thomas Moore

It’s the air used by Thomas Moore for his song "The Young May Moon".

He called the Air "The Dandy O"
