This is one of the first Irish tunes that I learned,by osmosis in De Hopzak in Antwerp.I believe that Dave Swarbrick recorded it.
Nice tune. I’ve included it in my list.
I like it too.It’s been years since I heard it in a session.
Reminds me of the first two parts of Cherish the Ladies.
I’ve been playing this tune since I first heard Swarbrick play it whilst he was on tour with Simon Nichol about 24 years ago. It was recorded on a Fairport Album with the reel The Swallows Tail in Am. I still play them regularly at sessions!!
