The Green Flag

I learnt this from the playing of the Gallowglass Ceili Band, who called it "Wrap The Green Flag Around Me Boys", but I have posted it with its more common name. There are probably lyrics to the tune.

This is certainly a march

- called one of the "great martial airs" of Ireland. I learned it from the James Goodman collection in G, though.


Oops, I went off on holiday without saying it was a march. Sorry, everybody.
