The Cordal

From Brendan Breathnach’s Ceol Rince na hEireann Vol. 1, collected from fiddler Denis Cronin. A lovely simple tune with a surprisingly low internet profile; I could not find the dots anywhere - except in the book itself. So here it is, hoping it will get played more.

Re: The Cordal

Nice tune, I think you should write your last to bars like this in order to show the triplets
|afge (3fgf (3efe|dcAB c2|]

Also is it intended that there is no repeat sign?

Re: The Cordal

It’s #169 in BB Vol1
It has no repeats. and the first 3 notes should be a triplet as well (3abc

Re: The Cordal

What does that Youtube video of “The Cordal Jig” have to do with the reel posted here, apart from sharing the same name ?
