Maire Breathnach’s #1

The first of 2 unusual polkas, I believe composed by Maire Breathnach. If anyone knows of a name fo it, please let me know, and I’ll change the title. I’ll post the 2nd one tomorrow.

Found it….

Maire Breathnach, along with Sharon Shannon, Trevor Hutchison on bass, and Gerry O’Beirne on ukelele[!] played this, plus the 2nd polka on a BBC Scotland Gaelic programme , must be over 10 years ago. I just came across them on a video tape. This polka is called "The Roundabout".
