Ballyvin - aka The Morroe Polka

Good old polka I learned - in Morroe from Peg Ryan (yes, that one) and it’s great for a 8th or 10th tune as it’s easy but too easy and the change in 2nd part is a boost for confidence to the learner.
Great tune to have at any rate.

Ba - LL - yfin 😀

Thanks, I only just realized my second ‘L’ wasn’t given with enough kick on this new (old!) keyboard… Maybe I need to exercise that particular finger more?
