### “The Banshee’s Wail” ~ C: Vincent Broderick

mrkelahan reminded me of this when finding it in an online collection of ABCs, a different version, minus the first and second ending and called simply "Broderick’s". Thanks for the reminder… I’ll give a simpler version here in the comments, minus some of my ‘distortions’…

### Irihs ~ Irish :-/

It’s catching up with me. That must be the umpteenth time I’ve transposed two adjacent letters, and not just another ‘fi’ or ‘fo’ instead of ‘if’ or ‘of’… Time for beddy byes…

### The Banshee’s Wail, X:3

This is the version we played for years in Westchester and Rockland counties, NY. It’s pretty similar to the 2nd setting here.
