Six comments

Also recorded by Paudie O’Connor and Noeleen O’Connor - Track1 on "The County Bounds", (Music and Song from the Cork/Kerry Border). They play it with a third part, written by Pádraig O’Keeffe…it’s a cracking tune, and a grand CD from live recordings from the 1998 Seán O’Riada Conference, which seems not to have been posted here yet … will get round to posting it!!
I have to say, though, that the Slopes of Sliabh Lauchra that the Red Wellies play in their set above seems to be a completely different tune.
