Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Revenge of SEAN RYAN!

I still find surprises in "The Hidden Ireland" almost every time i sit down with it. This man had the rarest of gifts for melody (measure 3 of this tune "gets" me every time!) and did it all whilst making his compositions sound older than the hills (this is a GOOD thing, IMHO). Enjoy!

OOPS! I done goofed…

I commented on how much I liked the phrase in measure 3 (&7 &15) so naturally I wrote the ABC’s wrong! The fouth note in measure 3 should be a "B" not a "b". I’ve already changed the ABC’s on this page. My apologies to anyone who injured his/herself trying to play it that way, my bad!


it really did "get me" the way it was originally entered! LOL 🙂
