This tune was composed by Cian Farrelly from Westmeath when we first met at The All Ireland in Tullamore.

story from cian - "Composed after the All Ireland Fleadh in Tullamore, I think it was (2008? was it R), [it was indeed Tullamore] the wet year. The river behind the housing estate, (cant remember the name Rachel)[Whitehall me thinks?] burst its banks and flooded the streets. To get to scoil éigse meant we had to wade barefooted through water, mud, sewage and the likes…..[apart from me who brought wellies, ye werent laughing at the culchie then were ye :P]

Wrong Name

I know this tune as Couch Adventures. The Leaky Floodgates is a different tune, also by Cian Farrelly.
