The Sheik’s Fancy
This tune was written by Paddy O’Brien, and I learnt it from Liam Farrell and Joe Whelan’s CD where it is called All The Way To Galway.

Re: The Sheik’s Fancy
I am told Paddy O’Brien hated polkas, and that he only composed three. Nonetheless, the three are great, despite the (demeaning?) names.
