A tune played occasionally in Bristol sessions, and rather more often in workshops for set dancers.
"Trip to the Jacks" / "Brosna"
Another rescue mission, expecting the "POOF!" as the duplication, July 13th 2005, disappears. Too many go that way and the authors rarely return to offer the ABCs in the ‘Comments’ of the earlier and surviving submission.
Another of Gian Marco’s valued transcriptions ~ in ‘A Major’:

Wow! I am always amazed at ‘The Whiz’ ~ it went "POOF!" as I was contributing the above for ‘posterity’…
my transcription came from
Music From Sliabh Luachra by Jackie Daly

The setting I just posted (X:4) is my attempt to notate Niamh Ní Charra’s version of "Lonesome Road to Dingle" from "Cuz". Right now it’s the sample available at http://www.niamhnicharra.com/
X: 5 "The Brosna" ~ No. 1
S: “Jimmy Doyle & Dan O’Leary: Traditional Music From The Kingdom Of Kerry”
~ track 5, the 1st slide of 3
Q: 145 bpm (1 beat = three quavers/eigth notes)
I have also learned this one direct, as well from other living sources and situations where the average tempos varied from 130 to 150 bpm (1 beat = three quavers/eighth notes)…
X: 6 "The Brosna"
Pat Sullivan’s squeeze of it…
