This is the song/tune that Jarlath Henderson sings/plays on the low whistle (Eb).
What he says about it:
"A story of false love, alcohol, gambling and emigration that I attribute to Armagh singer Roisin White. A version was also noted under the title ‘Farewell Ballymoney’ in Sam Henry’s Songs of the People. Sam’s collection of songs is considered invaluable in the North of Ireland, the place where I was born and raised. I can’t think of a more appropriate way to begin this album than with a gem from this fine collection."
