The Drake’s Neck

This is a Donegal tune that I got from the uilleann piper Se

Bears a resemblance to a tune called "The Milltown Lasses" as played on "Hidden Fermanagh" CDs.

Darragh Murphy follows with a great (J.Doherty’s?))version of Trim the Velvet on the Another Generation CD. A powerful set!
