West Limerick

I learned this tune from a whistle workshop recording a friend took with Tommy Fitzharris in Drumshambo some years ago. Generic title, "West Limerick Slide," but the tune is anything but. We’ve started playing it in sessions since she rediscovered the workshop recording.

Re: West Limerick

Tommy’s recording features some lovely sliding from B to half-holed C in the last few bars.
