The Glountane Monument has been added to 1 tunebook.
Based on Dan Herlihy’s playing. According to the late Dan Herlihy, this is one of two polkas inscribed on the monument to Padraig O’Keeffe at Glountane Cross. The tune was contributed by fiddler, Sonny O’Riordan. Whether this transcription bears much relation to the one there, I can’t yet tell.
Here is Pádraig O’Keeffe’s setting as given to a pupil:
It is a more florid (?) setting, which is not very common in his instruction settings. As usual it is an unnamed polka.
