The Quiet Glen/An Gleann Ci

I believe the correct name of the first tune on Track 10 is “Don’t touch that green Linnet” - that is the name on the cd sleeve and printed on the cd itself.


The second tune on track 10 is correctly titled ‘Doolish’, after the highest peak of the Derryveagh Mountains in Donegal. It’s incorrectly printed on the CD itself, so an easy mistake to make.

track 13b
The Kinnycally Klansmen

?? surely a bit sinister?!

Well I just bought this.

Wow. Phenomenal.

Sorry, Robert, but you’re incorrect on three counts. Firstly, the highest peak in the Derryveagh Mountains is Errigal not ‘Doolish’. Secondly, there is no ‘Doolish’ Mountain in that range, but there is a Dooish. Lastly, Tommy’s title is actually referring to the Dooish Mountain which lies not far from his birthplace of St. Johnston (see link below).

Hi All
Does anyone have any intention of putting in the Gortree Jig that
is played on Track 8 after The Quiet Glen jig which also needs doing.
I wish I could do it but music notation is not my big suit.
