The Kilcummin (slide)

I picked this tune up from the Four Men and a Dog album ‘Barking Mad’. Unfortunately I don’t know anything about the tune other than that it’s traditional.

There are several Kilcummin in Ireland, the one here might be the one north east of Killarney

The Kilcummin (slide)

There is also more than one tune of that name. The one played by Padraig O’Keeffe, Michael Tubridy, Paddy Glackin & Noel Hill and Johnny O’Leary is here under the name “Spring In the Bog” (https://thesession.org/tunes/10855#setting10855).
