A simple reel learned off Cathal McConnell’s "On Lough Erne’s Shore." It’s played after a beautiful set dance called Andy Kerrin’s. Somewhat reminds me of The Morning Star.
The A Part is Terry Teehan’s all over again.
Yeah, but Terry Teehan’s is more closely related to The Tap Room.
So is this McHugh’s. Kissing cousins. :o)
You beat me to it! I had just completed the ABCs for this tune meself! Same source.
For what it’s worth …
This is how I play the tune these days.

I was going to transcribe the next tune too, but will leave it to you, Paddy.
Please post “Primrose Path”
Actually, slainte, I would be grateful if you would take the time to post the next tune — it’s the "Primrose Path", right? I got both titles mixed up and taught McHugh’s to other people as The Primrose Path. It’s on at least one site by that name and I see myself mentioned there as the source. Either I have forgotten "The Primrose PAth" or didn’t learn it in the first place. Alas, I no longer have the album, so if you can, please post the tune.
This is called The Mountain Lark on Gerry O’Connor’s album "Last Night’s Joy", track 3b. It’s different from the other (the usual?) Mountain Lark but similar enough to McHugh’s so I added it here.
