From Brendan Mulvihill & Donna Long

transcribed from the Morning Dew where it appears after Shandon Bells/Boys of the Town/Rakes of Clonmel for a nice Am->Amaj transition to end the set.

2nd time through the pick-up and first bar is played F| E3 E2 B (double-stopping E and open A string)

last time the 2nd part is
fef fef|fef fef|fef fef|fef fef|ece ece|ece ece|

slowing down over the final notes.

Slainte - I agree - also has a ring of ‘Out on the Ocean’ to it

The following version, in G, with a different ending to the A-part a different B-part altogether, was posted here

by Mike and Renee Batten. They call it ‘Donnelly’s’.
