### Trip to Dingle

This is the last tune of the set Dingle Berries on Lunasa`s album Se. Great polka. I failed to find it anywhere on the net so I had to write it down from the record (from my memory, to be correct, `cause it is not necessarily the exact Lunasa version - it may be slightly different but playable anyway). I suspect there is at least one more polka by the same name.

### The Trip To Dingle, X:3

Learned from Alan Kelly himself

(In Alan’s notation there are triplets marked for the 16th notes but I think the way they’re played is more like a straight polka, 16th notes … correct me if I’m wrong Alan!)

Whistle friendly settings from the Molly’s Revenge album "Trio".

### The Trip To Dingle, X:11

Whistle friendly setting. Closer to the original (without any of the low B’s and A’s, and with a few alternative notes beyond octave jumping those low ones).

### The Trip To Dingle, X:12

I learned this great polka recently. This setting is the way I learned it by ear from a concertina player who said he picked up this tune at last year’s Fleadh. Apparently this is the way it was taught to him. Interesting how the parts are played twice!
