Lady Athenry

I noticed in the review of Derek Bell’s CD, "The Music of Carolan, Vol. 1" that "Lady Atherny" was not in the tune list. Since it is one of my favorites, I thought I would choose it for my first abc contribution to this forum.

This is the version found in O’Neill’s, slightly modified to sound more like the version on one of Patrick Ball’s Celtic Harp CD’s.
