Turas Go Tír Na NÓg

First heard this piece of music from the album by Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin and got this version from listening to the wonderful whistle playing of Brian Hughes and is featured on his whistle album “Whistle Stop”

Re: Turas Go Tír Na NÓg

This was recorded by Jackie Daly in 1977, many years before Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin recorded it. What evidence do you have that Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin composed it, please ?
And of course, it is a slow air, not a waltz.

Pretty much settles that, I would say. Thanks, Nico.
As an aside, the tune was showing up as recorded by Pat Kilbride, but what he did record was a song “Tir na Nog” by an Irish duo of songwriters from the 1970s, also called “Tir na Nog”. I saw them open for “Jethro Tull” once, in Dundee, and liked their music. Pat Kilbride’s version was excellent. I removed the link.

and the original :

Goes without saying, nothing at all to do with the slow air of the same name.

Kenny I was referring to Mícheál’s interpretation on the river of sound album. I’ll take the composer header off the abc go raibh míle. 🙂
