Composer of this tune.

My friend James Murray from Tubbercurry wrote this tune and it comes in his chapter of Bernard Flaherty’s book, ‘Trip to Sligo’. He tells me that he didn’t give it a name, but he played it to Bernard as he sat on the bonnet of his own red fiat, so Bernard christened it accordingly! He plays it after ‘Tribute to Fred’, which he also wrote, and which is also in Bernie’s book.

Thanks a lot for this information, portraitpainter! The version here is indeed identical to the one in Flaherty’s Trip To Sligo. Great to know the composer now!
