This tune is transcribed from the playing of Conal O’Grada. It is played as the second tune of a 2 tune set called the Gold and Silver Marches. I submitted the Gold March as:

https://thesession.org/tunes/10949

The two go very well together.

Any improvements on the transcription are welcome.

Your barlines are in the wrong plac. You can edit your abc before it’s converted to sheetmusic.

Abc updated: Thank you

Thanks Dr Dow for taking the trouble to review this. I have updated the abc as per your comment… Ta

Second G in Fourth Bar…

might be better as natural. This would parallel the opening phrase. (The second G is sharp because the first G was sharped; you will need an = before the second G if you decide to take my suggestion).

2nd g fourth bar

You are correct muspc. I have adjusted the abc. I forgot that sharpening the first G applied to all other Gs in the bar. Well spotted. …. Ta

By another name!

I was informed recently that the correct name for this tune is the Siamsa March.
