“Siúil A Ghrá” ~ an air

Alright, I’m no whiz when it comes to transcribing airs, but a discussion came up with regards to this tune here:

Discussion: Slubhail a Gradh?

“Is there anyone who knows what this means or where I can hear a recorded version of this tune? It is one of the first ones I ever tried to play on fiddle, but I would like to hear how it is played traditionally, if it is in fact played by anyone. Thanks”

So, I’ve made a stab at it for ‘pearse’. I hope this is at least close to what you remember. This may also give you a lead in to learning ABC notation…

I know there’s a load of you out there that will recognize the air and I suspect the lyrics will follow too, which would be welcome…

I know a different song with similar words. It’s on Carmel Gunning’s “The Lakes of Sligo” CD and the first album of Solas.
