The Black Swan On The Turlough

This was requested by MacChristo72. It’s a Michael McGoldrick jig from the album “Arc”. McGoldrick plays this composition rather slowly and on a B-flat flute, so that it comes out in concert C dorian instead of E dorian. Pleasant to listen to, and I like the variations on some of the part repeats.

I assume this news item has something to do with the tune title:
https://www.irishexaminer.com/news/arid-20132173.html
“A lonely black swan, indigenous to Australia, was first spotted near Castleconnell in August.”
“Turlough McNamara who was one of the first to spot the new couple”
