The EIRE Sign

This reel was composed by Áine Heslin..It’s a SLOW-FAST reel… she starts playing it slowly and then increase the speed.
According to the sleeve notes of the recording:
”The EIRE sign – This tune depicts the careful restoration by the local Loophead community of an
historical monument – if something embedded in the ground can be so described! – at the grounds
of Loophead Lighthouse.”
