The Lass Wi a Tocher

The Robert Burns song "The Lass Wi a Tocher" uses this tune which I believe is Irish. I cannot find it online anywhere so have transcribed this from a recording.

Ballinara Ora, X:2

From "Flowers of Irish Melody", Belfast 1848, as "Ballinamona Oro", but the Irish title would probably be "Baile na M贸na 脫r贸". Ballinamona/Baile na M贸na is the name of at least two villages in Ireland, one in Co. Cork and one in Co. Wexford. The name means "Town of the bogland/moor".

Ballinara Ora, X:3

Here’s the setting in G under the title "The Wedding of Ballyporeen" in O’Neill’s 1001, tune #996.

Re: Ballinara Ora

"The Wedding of Ballyporeen" was a comic song.
