Recorded by Conal O’Grada on his Cnoc Bui album as John Walshe’s

Conal O’Grada has recorded this as the second tune in a 3 polka set on his Cnoc Bui album. He uses the name John Walshe’s but it’s the same tune (slight variation)

Great polka set! The transition into the 3rd tune from this is dramatic. The 3rd tune is Pulling/Cutting Bracken.
