At our sessions we always follow this one with "the Bucks of Oranmore". It was played by Stockton’s Wing many years ago in Clare and their name has sometimes been used as the title for the tune.

Matt Molloy has a *fantastic* version of this tune on his solo black album. One of my all time favorite tunes!

And as a jig

I seem to recall that "Stockton’s Wing" also played this as a jig - and it worked.

Hughie

and I think "Travers" first name was Hughie.
