Okay, it’s a Corrs tune - but it’s still nice to play isn’t it?!

There you go - I didn’t know that.

The tune has also been used by a couple from Lindisfarne for a Celtic hymn called "Open To You". I’ll put the cd details into the Recordings database, so there’s a record of it.

This isn’t a corrs song, it’s a trad one, right ??

Right.

Paddy’s Green Shamrock Shore

I’ve put this in as an alternative title and it’s come up on several other recordings. It’s not a jig. A waltz time would be more appropriate, and as far as I know, the Corrs are the only ones to call this melody "Erin’s Shore". Paul Brady’s version takes some beating.
