Farewell To Eireann

Lifted this tune from the Bakerswell Tape. Sean Potts tells us in the sleeve notes that he learned this tune from his uncle, the one & only Tommy Potts.

However, it’s such a well known tune that I’d be very surprised if it isn’t already in here.

However, I couldn’t find it, only the standard Farewell to Erin.

This is no doubt a version of ‘Farewell to Ireland’?

Well, at least this is a piping friendly version. That has to count for something!
