This is the waltz that accompanies the hornpipe. Both written by Charlie Lennon. Maire O’Keefe does a nice job of it on her album.

Re recordings.
If I recall, the waltz is on Sharon’s album and the hornpipe is on Altan’s.

The ABC transcription was identical to the one given here, note-for-note, even the spacing and layout were identical. Here’s the comment ~


Written by Charlie Lennon after sitting in the Wicklow ( or Co Dublin ?) mountains and listening to the repeated notes made by bees.At least that’s what i recall the story to be.

A pair with the hornpipe of the same name. I think they are meant to played as a suite, as on Maire O"Keefe’s album House Party.
