Another Tune played by Shane Meehan during the Sean O’Riada gold medal 2019. He plays a lot of variations on it. This is the first turn of the tune.

Re: Gan Ainm

That’s Right. Sorry for that. It sounded a bit familiar to my ears, but I couldn’t find it in the database. I tried Tunepal and it didn’t work.
I think I should erase it and post it as a version of The Maid in The Meadow but I do’nt know how to do that.

Re: Gan Ainm

Don’t worry, Pierre - I’m sure Jeremy will do that for you shortly. Thanks for taking the trouble to submit it. ^_^
