This is the same transcription but as a reel. For some daft reason I’ve known it both ways… ๐Ÿ˜

R: reel

Seems I’ve messed that up twice already…

No worry ~ I’m under doctor’s care! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

C, maybe you need a new doctor!
This would be the little castle that is perched on the edge of the harbour - if indeeed its still there at all!
This tune has much more of the feel of a POB tune than the last one (Patrick’s Night) that I thought he hadn’t written :(

Who’s your doc Donough? ๐Ÿ˜€

Garrykennedy Castle

What a fantastic tune. You have no pity "c" as here’s another one I have to now struggle and learn!
