This tune, which I believe Damien Connolly wrote for his wife 10 - 15 years ago, caught my ear when I was listening to the Téada album Ceol & Cuimhne. I play it on whistle, which leaves out the richness of the chords but the melody stands alone quite well. This is my first time to add a tune and I owe my daughter Faith a great deal of thanks for her patience in helping me. I have left out most of the slides and slurs for simplicity (and because I am a tad lazy!)

Sally Gally, X:4

Based on the playing of Pádraig McGovern from the compilation CD ‘Tempered’; a great CD of uilleann piping from some first-class contemporary players with sympathetic piano by Ryan Molloy.

The track, where the tune follows the slow air ‘Easter Snow’, can be heard on Band Camp: https://ryanmolloy.bandcamp.com/album/tempered
