Monastery Stones

From the Eddie Dooley manuscript collection. There’s a note on the bottom of the page that seems to indicate that this was already a well-known tune around his home town of Cappoquin, but the page is torn and the handwriting is hard to read. The monastery in question would probably be Mount Melleray, just south of Cappoquin. Dooley’s grandfather was a caretaker there in the late 19th century.
