Same as "The Jolly Seven."

Jolly Seven

Yep, "The Jolly Seven" is a more common title for this tune. We don’t repeat the parts when we play it. Paddy O’Brien recorded it the same way.

Jolly Seven in O’Neill’s and as on Andrew MacNamara’s CD

The Maghera, X:3

I was wrong about the parts repeating in my previous post. Paddy O’Brien and James Kelly repeat the second part in their setting.
