Moonlight In Mayo

A popular waltz in my town, we play it often at the end of a night of set dancing to wind down.

Curious about the name…where’s Mayo?

Re: Moonlight In Mayo

Western county, north of Galway, west of Sligo.

Here’s a version of it as a song, performed by Bridie Gallagher with a backing band composed entirely of thatched cottages: https://youtu.be/3_i1ioCBeh8
