Three comments

One polka of a set with Stocktons Wing

Posted by .

From the Co. Dublin Gaeltacht?

I thought it must be a mistake, so I checked, and it’s not:

"10. THE SLIABH (SLIEVE) Lucan Polkas 1, 2 & 3 (Roche/Lennon)

Three polkas here, not as you would expect from Sliabh Luchra in County Kerry, but from Lucan in County Dublin. We hope you’ll pardon the pun!"

Is this an original composition?

Sliabh Lucan, X:2

From the playing of Stockton’s Wing. Transposed down from Emaj.

For comparison with the previous setting.
