O’Carolan

I was surprised when i noticed that this tune wasn’t in the site.
As you can see, this tune is an O’Carolan composition and , obviously, isn’t a real polka.
Enjoy playing it!!!

Re: Planxty Maguire

Any idea who was Brian Maguire ?

Re: Planxty Maguire

The Maguires were and are a prominent family in County Fermanagh; their castle still stands in Enniskillen.

Re: Planxty Maguire

In praise of Colonel Constantine Maguire who "died unmarried in 1739. It is he who is said to have brought about the meeting between Carolan and the South Ulster poet Seamus Mac Cuarta." (O’Sullivan 1958)
