"O’Hanlon’s Bridge"

From ‘The Keegan Tunes, Vol. 1’-

"O’Hanlon’s Bar is renowned throughout Ireland as a formost venue for traditional music. This is in keeping with (the) bars role in the preservation of the music and heritage of the area, and it is unique in the world - still a family business after fifteen generations and 400 years! Ringed by an attractive river walk, this spot is typical of the wider surrounding Ring of Gullion, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty."

One of my favorites from this work, I still don’t have the CD and am still hoping to some day pay a visit! (My family’s originally from the Monaghan/Armagh area, though from the US of A for several generations.)

A lovely tune, thanks… Check your mailbox…

I gather dear Jeremy made the corrections to the original ABCs as he saw them…
