The Avonmore.

I’m surprised this isn’t on here. Unless it is here under a different name, but The Reverend’s gizzmo doesn’t bring up anything else. It appears in Ryan’s Mammoth Collection as ‘Blackwater’ - different river. Several versions around. Here is the ‘Mammoth’ setting:

The Avonmore, X:2

Here the version which appears in O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland - 1001 Gems (1907), p. 90, no. 468, as Abainn-mor, The Avonmore.
