The Silver Tip
This tune is from O’Neill’s Music of Ireland (#1185), or #464 in the 1001 book. It also appears in the Leo Rowsome collection. Whilst “The Silver Tip” is given as an alternative name for “The Silver Spear” and “Seán Mháire Mhicilín”, this tune bears no resemblance to either of those tunes. It is very similar to another tune from O’Neill’s entitled “My Honey In The House”, and to “My Love Is In The House”.
