The Flags Of Dublin

Someone posted a very obscure version of a tune with this title, and I’m not sure that this, the better-known tune by that name, has ever been posted here. I first heard it played by Mick O’Brien on the LP of the same name, which featured Mick Gavin and Paddy Glackin. This is a very basic version, but so different from what’s been posted here that I think it should be here in its’ own right. JACKB posted a more eloborate "abc" version in the comments, and should be given credit for that.

I agree, this definitely deserves a separate posting. Hope it stays.

Remove the 1st ending indicator in the B part

…since you wrote the repeat out. I’m only writing with this small suggestion since the sheet music has not yet been generated and you’ve got a chance to correct it.
