Méiltí Cheann Dubhrann

Not really a waltz, but 3/4 (sort of). This is based on what Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh does on Ceol Aduaidh.

It has been recorded by Harry Bradley (as Blue Hills of Antrim); and with lyrics by Gráinne Holland (as The Blue Hills of Antrim, with Méilte Cheann Dubhrann as an alternative title), and Moya Brennan (as Méilte Cheann Dubhrann).

Recorded by Ciaran Mulholland as the Blue Hills of Antrim in a set with The Home Ruler Hornpipe and Mulqueen’s Reel on CD An Antrim Fiddle.
