Well done….

Nice one, "Didier". I’d been meaning to post this fine hornpipe for a while, after hearing it played by Sean Keane and Liam O’Flynn on the "Lamh Ar Lamh" CDs from a few years ago. They - and also "O’Neill’s 1001" - have a 4-part version, rather than 3 parts. I might add that setting later.

The Bantry, X:2

This is the 4-part version, as found as #937 in my edition of "O’Neill’s 1001". It is more or less the same version as posted by Didier, but with an extra part. Great hornpipe.

The D and C parts of Kenny’s setting are played as "The Iron Gate" on Finbarr Dwyer’s album, after The Groves of Slaney.
