"This tune got played in sessions in Durham (England) back around 1980. It was in one of four (at least) books of Irish tunes published by Messrs. Bulmer and Sharpley, from which the sessioneers got most or much of their repertoire - they weren’t into Planxty or the Bothy Band much, if at all." ~ nicholas

Yeah, I said I was working on it, and this isn’t all, but I’m just not that quick. When I do rush things, or someone has other plans for me and is poking me to get me to shift gears ~ I always screw up somewhere… 😏
Re: The Road To Tralee
I love listening to Na Fili’s version of this, especially the second and third time around.
