Transcribed from Elizabeth Crotty’s EXCELLENT album. I love it to death. I’m going on a "I like older albums like woah" kick for a bit and oh man… I just need more. I love it. LOVE IT!!!!

Cheers,
Armand

On "The Lonesome Touch," Martin Hayes calls this the Garden of Butterflies. I have no idea if that’s an accurate title.

Duplicated

No, the correct title is "The Walls of Liscarroll": https://thesession.org/tunes/232 It’s normally played in Edor. Clare musicians sometimes play in a weird key though.

I know this one from the sessions at the Victory Cafe in Toronto, and it’s in O’Neill’s in the wrong key (too many sharps), as The Walls of Liscarroll. I like it with c#s between the d’s in the B part.

This is really a beautiful tune. Mrs. Crotty blows my mind.
