Father Brian MacDermott Roe has been added to 15 tunebooks.
One of my favorite, lesser known (or at least, not as commonly heard) O’Carolan tunes. There’s a very sweet rendition of this on the Boys of the Lough,“The Fair Hills of Ireland” CD - played on the pipes. I find it should be played fairly slowly.
