Not to be confused with the hornpipe, MISS Galvin’s (also here in The Session) - although a family resemblance is detectable. I learned it from concertina player, Miche

“Miss Galvin’s Highland Fling” ~ single and spirited

Another tune from Joe Ryan’s album An Buachaill Dreoite (English Translation The Smoky Boy).
