Ómós Do Na Mairbh

Of course it’s not a barndance but rather anything like a slow march, in 2/2 and not 4/4.

Ómós Do Na Mairbh or Lament for the Dead was composed by Michael Rooney, as a part of the Macalla Suite, an orchestral piece commemorating the Easter Rising of 1916.

Here is an interpretation from the master on harp, with his wife June McCormack on flute :
