John Walsh’s

From the playing of Garry Walsh, Clare Fitzpatrick, and, Johnny Neville.

They also play the third bar of the A Part as “~G3 GED”. It also works as “DEF GED”.

In his album liner notes, Garry lists it as traditional. His grandfather learned it from The Dominic Maguire dance band from Drogheda in the late 1930’s.
