An Trucailín Donn

Track 11 from Realta’s debut album “Open the Door for Three.” This is (from what I gather) an original song by the group sung by Deirdre Galway. The title translates to “The Little Brown Cart” and refers to the infamous 1905 court case of Neil McBride, who was fined a shilling (which eventually became 2 shillings) for printing his name in Gaelic instead of English on his farm cart.

I’ve transcribed the instrumental version from the end of the recording. It makes a champion tune- even without the lyrics!
