I think this tune has a nice melody and is best played softly. Michael Rooney do a good job of it.
Michael Rooney & June McCormack that is!
If I didn’t know who the composer was, I would have put money on Paddy O’Brien. This tune has similar things going on to the likes of the Barge Inn.
Dermot Byrne and Floriane Blancke play it in G dor here, second tune..
A nice version here played by Dylan Foley. (2nd tune, starts at ~1:30)
The Road To Monalea, X:2
A G version. Great tune to make the low strings growl.
The Road To Monalea, X:3
This setting closely matches the first repeats Colin Botts’ performance at Irish World Academy of Music and Dance in Limerick Ireland.
