Irish Islands and their Tunes
"Inisheer" (tune by Thomas Walsh) is a lovely waltz. Was wondering if Inisheer is one of the Aran Islands ("inish" must mean "island" cf "Inishfree" and "Inishboffin". Aran easily confused with Arran (Scot. island).. is it "Aran Boat Song" or "Arran Boat Song"?
Any other good Irish island tunes popular at sessions? Or lesser known ones? Thanks.
