Planxty Sweeney

This is a Turlough O’Carolan tune that I learned off of the album "Telenn Vor" by the Breton harping duo (twin brothers actually) Triskell. It’s a lovely tune, and I only hope that my fiancée and I have transcribed it right, neither of us having used ABC format before. The album lists it as "Planxty Sweeny", but I’m fairly certain it should be spelled with the second ‘e’ like so: Sweeney (though maybe not!).

Aye FloatingFisherman, this is one we, myself & Mrs Pt often play together. I don’t remember ever hearing anyone else play it!

Next time yourself & your fiancee, (no doubt she’s your wife by now) are in Co Antrim, call by & we can play it together! 🙂

This Is a turlough O’Carolan tune. Our Happy Harpers group decided we wanted to play it to honor Sweeney the dog who belongs to one of our members.
