Composed by Máirtín O’Connor I believe…

Yes, at a concert in the Hammersmith Irish Centre a couple of years ago Mairtin explained that he composed this tune for his parents-in-law (I think…) who had been married for a very very long time, can’t remember exactly how long!

I believe the original key is A major, which does give it a nice bright feel!
