The Cliffs Of Glencolumbkille

This reel comes from the first Altan album, where it was just Frankie Kennedy and Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh. It’s very similar to "Last Night’s Fun", as has been noted elsewhere. However, I thought I might as well just post it anyway. The late Vincent Campbell called it "The Glen Man’s Ramble".
