Another great 7/8 tune by Michael McGoldrick. Transcription is based on the recording of the tune on *Aurora*, where it is played on an F whistle. Where I’ve marked ~g2, Michael plays either fg, g2, or gz. Mix to suit :-)

For those on other instruments wishing to play along with the recording, here’s the tune transposed:
