The Heathery Cruach

From Frankie & Mairead’s duet recording. Not the tune on "Island Angel".

They cite John Doherty as the source.

I don’t think they are "virtually the same." They are different in the 2nd part.

Perhaps it would have been better to express it as the Hornless Cow appears to be a predecessor of this tune because, although the 2nd part is different, there are similarities in the flow of the tune.
