Danny O’ Mahony Tune ID please

Re: Danny O’ Mahony Tune ID please

It’s either "The Cabin Hunter", or "The Road To Cashel" [ comp. Charlie Lennon ]. I’ll leave you to decide, the two are very similar.

I think you’re right, jeff - [ can’t win ‘em all ]. Especially if you look at "slainte’s" very first comment on the tune from 8 years ago if you follow your link immediately above this. Good man yourself !

Wow, I didn’t even see that refernce to the very same clip.

By the way, the opening bar is similar to the Road to Cashel/Cabin Hunter mishmash so I give you half a point for that guess. If the Mountain Lark had come up in a session, there’s a big chance I would have started Cabin Hunter (and then have to take a short break - as mentioned in the recent "sitting out" thread…:)).

I was listening to Charlie Lennon playing "The Road To Cashel" yesterday, so it must have stuck.

The Mountain Lark it is then!

Thanks everyone, I seem to need tune names to help pull them out my memory banks, helps to get a handle on the tune somehow, sometimes I even resort to giving them my own names if I don’t know the proper one.
