Hi there RLuis, thanks for posting! However, it’s a bit unclear what this tune is. Where did you get it from? Is it your own composition?

I’ve had a go at clearing up the ABC, but it’s by no means perfect. You can find information about writing in ABC here http://abcnotation.com/

And a good place to check your sheet music before you post is http://www.concertina.net/tunes_convert.html

Hi Charlie Piggott (of De Dannan) got this tune off an old man in ennistymon and didn’t know the name of it. And to the webmaster, do you think we could submit real music somehow(with sibelius or something)? I really don’t get ABC. cheers.
