Thanks c, I haven’t dared post anything for a while in case it wasn’t irish enough or a duplicate :-)

Here’s a youtube- a bit crackly.

A bit slower than I would play it, but with a lovely hiccup at the end of the A part.

Chris

Yes, very slow, but good for learning from and a sweet take on it too. Thanks for the link Chris, appreciated, and I’m sure others will feel likewise…

Heard this at a session not long back - a splendid tune, which I had forgotten existed…
