The Merry Maids Of Connaught

Attributed to Carolan, this appears to be his treatment of a known Irish tune. (information from Bonnie Shaljean’s appendix to the 2001 edition of Donal O’Sullivan’s CAROLAN : The Life, Times and Music of an Irish Harper)

Re: The Merry Maids Of Connaught

This has the feel of a march rather than reel. Worth playing I think.
