A Day In Sligo

This tune on John Hoban’s album "Castlebar Station", and is his arrangement of a traditional air. The tune, as transcribed here, is really in C minor - a choice not a available on the submission page. It is a haunting tune when played slowly. The arrangement of dotted eighths and sixteenth notes is somewhat arbitrary - follow your own muse for guidance.
