Sraid Na Cathrach

This is the second tune in this set from Zoe Conway, both her compositions (posted with permission).
I’m not sure which is my favorite, the 2nd part is a bit, tough to play (good exercise), but I do love
the 3rd part of this one.

From notes found here:

Straid Na Cathrach is the Irish for Miltown-Malbay.
There is an annual festival there called Scoil Samhraidh Willie Clancy,
and I have been to it every year of my life so far!

Re: Straid Na Cathrach

There’s a typo in that title, which has oddly been repeated numerous times on that Tara Music website. It should be "Sráid na Cathrach". I have added the correct spelling as an alternative title.

Re: Straid Na Cathrach

I had changed the title to what it is reputed to be. That is, it’s my blame, not zoronic’s. Confusing, though, as the composer’s own website lists it as "Straid", http://www.zoeconway.com/shop

Translates into English as Miltown Malbay.

Sraid Na Cathrach is a slip jig

it is indeed a slip jig in 9/8 as Doogary Crannog which is said to be paired (here it is given as 6/8 ; because bars are written in 9/8, is there any bug in the soft of the database? )
