On Altan’s first album, in a set with An tSeanchailleach Gallda.

It’s a great tune, and the extra 6 beats at the end of the A part throws you off a bit, but is really fun!

I’m not seeing the extra six beats…

could you tell me what I’m missing?

Just FYI…. Asked Dermot Byrne if he wrote this or if he had any info, but he said he just picked it up along the way, so we don’t have a composer on this. Trad, I guess.
