My mistake

The firts three dots ot the second bar of the B part are wrong.
The should be BGB instead of GBG.

The ‘hot spot’ on of the forge ~ some alternate hammerings:

alternates ~
part A, the lead in can start:
|: D czA |
part B, bar 1 (=f):
| g3 g2 e =f3 f2 d |

The melody, especially the "A" part, is similar to the song "Rose of Aranmore" recorded by Beginish on their CD of the same name. The song makes a lovely air on flute or whistle.
