Actually, I first heard this tune on The Sligo Champion, and thought it worked nicely with Dinny O’Brien’s following… Thanks for transcribing it !
Good tune. Is it similar to a reel called Rattigan’s?
yes, the A part is similar to Rattigan’s.
This is a composition of Galway native Martin Mulhaire. He’s a great box player who came to the US in 1960 with the Tulla Ceili Band and now lives in Pearl River, New York. His title for it is "The Old Thatched House." It was recorded as "Mulhaire’s No. 1" by Martin’s brother Brendan’s ceili band.
