Maghera Mountain

Composed by Martin Hayes.
From Mary MacNamara - Traditional music from East Clare

Not sure, but this is probably recorded in Gdor, which is a proper Clare key.

The Kane Sisters play this tune in a great set of Jug of Punch/Fred Finn’s (in C)/The Maghera Mountain. Here’s what I hear them playing:

K:G Dorian
S:The Kane Sisters - Under The Diamond

Chords

Does anyone have chords for this tune in the G dorian key?
I can’t find them anywhere.
I’d really appreciate any help.
Thanks!

Bryn - try these:

Gm - |Gm - |Gm - |F - |Gm - |Gm C |F - |F Gm :|

Don’t take it as gospel - there are many other possibilities.

Re: Maghera Mountain

I am mainly OK with the chords, except the 2nd bar of the B part. I would have put a Bb instead of the Gm.
