The Tinker’s Apron

From Breandan Breathnach’s Ceol Rince Na Eireanne.John Docherty recorded it in 1977 and it appeared on Arcady’s album,“After The Ball”.It is also to be found in Kerr’s Collection.

Monaghan Twig ?

Recorded by “Any Old Time” - Matt Cranitch, Dave Hennessy & Mick Daly. It’s almost identical to “The Monaghan Twig”. Which came first , I don’t know.
