First time for everything

Version learnt from the O’Shaughnessy/Bradley recording, Born for Sport. From memory, so there are probably some small differences.

My first tune post on this forum, and my first go at ABC notation. I used ABCExplorer.

more info here:

surprised more folks haven’t added this. Is this a duplicate?

Re: Baitheadh Bhrioclais

I just found Carbray’s Frolics (, via reading through O’Neill’s 1001 (where it is #407). With the exception of one pair of bars (the first / fifth bar of the B section) these tunes are basically identical. I move to merge this one into that one.

Re: Baitheadh Bhrioclais

Sorry, completely disagree with you on this, Ian Varley - Carbray’s Frolics as listed here on thesession is not remotely the same tune as this one. Are you maybe thinking of a different tune Ian?
