This wee tune was taught by Maureen McGrattan to our lad this summer at Willie Clancy. Reminded me a bit of An Gabhairín Buí when I heard it - was looking around to see if there was a name for it for him, but doesn’t seem to be here or elsewhere?
It’s in the book ‘An Pota Stóir’ under the above name; additionally, it’s notated in the key of A.
Thanks David, the collective wisdom here always surprises me. ‘An Pota Stóir’ seems to be a collection of Chorca Dhuibne music - I suppose it literally means the ‘pot of knowledge’ or just ‘the collection’?
Ah yes, I see it trips off handily enough in A as well. I suppose Maureen gave it in G, to avoid all the youngsters whistles falling on the floor on the C#’s!!
Thus is the version recorded by ‘Teada’ on their CD ‘Inne Amarach’ track 4 first tune.
I have transposed that as played by the Melodeon (2nd tme through the tune as recorded).
