Fort Dunree

This is a tune I heard played on the Uilleann Pipes by a great piper named Michael Cooney. He learned the tune from the album The Return of Spring by Buttons and Bows. The tune was composed by the fiddle player Manus McGuire. I transcribed the tune from the recording as best I can. As it did not really fall into any category I was not sure what type of music it was best called. If anyone can improve on the notation, please feel free to do so. It is a lovely tune indeed

Fort Dunree, X:2

I modified SeanMcC’s setting by listening to the Buttons and Bows recording. Hope you appreciate it!
All Thanks to Sean for posting this in the first place.

Re: Fort Dunree

I must apologise to anyone who used my setting (3) above before 23/1/19 as there were un-noticed errors which I have corrected today . It is now the same as Buttons and Bows play it without the intro they use or the bridge between the 2 parts which I have not notated.
