A great tune by Donogh Hennessy, taken from the "Masters of the Irish Guitar" CD, though I got it from his myspace page. Originally played in Bb, and sounds best on guitar, naturally. Can anybody correct my mistakes, as I’m almost certain there’s at least one or two, but I had trouble figuring out exactly where the melody was going.

Wow, I just now realized I put this in the wrong key…
The correct key is D, not G, and originally played in Bb.

Beautiful tune; just downloaded the music, having heard it played by banjo player Johnny Duffy; some parts slightly different, but gist of tune the same. Thanks.
