Sir Phillip McHugh

From Dave Swarbrick’s book,"Dave Swarbrick Takes A Bow".

Swarbrick Recording

Dave plays this one after The rocky Road to Dublin, then returning to the Rocky Road again, played once.

Sir Phillip McHugh

That’s right,wasn’t it on his album "Swarbrick 2"?

Transcribed from Paddy O’Brien’s "Chulrua:Down the Back Lane" situated between "I’m the Boy for Bewitching Them" and "The Night Before Larry was Stretched"

Clannad?

This somehow rings a bell…early Clannad LP…what was it called there?????

Interesting - pretty much identical to the version taught by Sean Ryan in his whistle class at Drumshanbo just a couple of weeks ago.
