The Banba

From Fintan Vallely’s album "Merrijig Creek". I believe he might be the composer. Track #2.3.

"The reel that follows is ‘The Banba’, in a flute-friendly fingering, a title that was common in post-independence Ireland, it being one of the ancient names for the island. Brian O’Higgins had The Banba Press, as had a famous Dublin toy- and book-shop chain, the descendant of which still carries the name."
