Inagh Valley

WARNING: This is not a polka! I only uploaded it as a polka due to the time signature! This tune is in fact a slow air, I’m pretty sure this was written by Martín O’Connor.

Re: Inagh Valley

Thanks Níall for this transcription of a beautiful tune. It seems to me that the most appropriate time signature for this tune would be 4/2 (with the first bar of what you have written in 2/4 just as a minim up-beat). Unfortunately it seems thesession.org can’t support anything in 4/2 though.

Also I think there is a minim G missing at the end of the third line (to complete a phrase in the B-part). It’s natural to hold that G for four minim beats rather than three 🙂
