I knew this was already on site but couldn’t find it, and did quite a lot of looking for it too…

Bernard O’Sullivan & Tommy McMahon ~ great music

This, "The Cooraclare Polka", is the B-part I’m most familiar with…

Buffallo girls

sounds like decorated buffallo girls

Yes, so you know that playparty song do you Alan? I can see you now, singing and dancing around the gals…

Oh Buffalo Gals won’t yuh come out tonight,
Won’t yuh come out tonight,
Won’t you come out tonight,
Oh Buffalo Gals won’t yuh come out tonight,
And dance by the light of the moon…

Hey Alan, if you see Jamie, Mr. Troy, give him my love and tell him to write already…
