This is a Carolan tune,notated in 2/2 which I could not find in the options…

Funny thing is that in the "Complete Works of O’Carolan" (Ossian, 1989) the tune is listed in the index as "Miss Murp". ;)

Sweet tune

Thanks for this. My band has recently decided to specialize in O’Carolan tunes (for softer tunes between reels and jigs), so this tune will be a lovely addition to our repertoire.

Re: Miss Murphy

I adore this tune and play it on the harp. Puts me into a really good humour if I
succeed in playing it without a mistake!!!
