Re: Galway Tom

Yes, and also the Lark’s March (aka the Geese in the Bog or the Lark in the Bog), The Fair-haired Boy, Seamus Cooley’s Lark in the Morning, and others.

It’s part of a family of tunes that goes pretty far back, and it would be hard to say what’s the original (but it’s probably *not* the Lark in the Morning as we know it today).
