O’Connell’s Farewell To Dublin (march)

I’m a bit surprised this haunting tune wasn’t posted yet. I first heard it played down a note by Martin Hayes, but the version here comes from Gerry Harrington’s fiddle playing on a recent recording.

This is a great tune. Thanks for posting the sheet music!

O’Connell’s Farewell To Dublin, X:2

A lovely, haunting, 12/8 march in E dorian. This setting is no repeats like X:1 (but the tune repeats in both parts anyway). Taken from ‘A Fine Selection of Over 200 Irish Traditional Tunes for Sessions’, compiled by David Speers with a Forward by Matt Cranitch.
