I’ve never really checked what key this is on the recording. But this key (or in F major) is the most accessible for most instruments. Here’s the tune then in the other key. Possible on D on the box also, but that’s not great for the fiddle.
T:Homage To Rooney (F)
C:Johnny Og Connolly
S:Johnny Og Connolly
N:Transposed to F

Wow, this is a great tune, I wish I played fiddle or banjo or something so I could play this tune… =(
Last tune in the set:
I’ve always stuck with D, assuming the accordion was dropping to an (inaccessible) low F… Doesn’t look AT ALL friendly in Emaj.
