Longnancy’s

This is another great tune composed by Niall Vallely.
It is on the album Buille.
This transcription however is from the solo guitar playing of Paul Meehan at a concert with Cillian Vallely and Kevin Crawford.
I don’t know if it is exactly the same as what is on the Buille album.

The bar "The Diamond" in Madden (or Derrynoose), on the Monaghan Rd. from Armagh, is referred to locally as "Long Nancy’s". They used to have lovely weekend, daytime sessions.

Heard on a session in Hanover, followed by Winnie Hayes’ in Dminor and a tune in Dmaj I don’t have a name for.
