Fair and Forty (hornpipe)

This rarely heard hornpipe is the untitled tune on Sligo whistle player Carmel Gunning’s first solo album. The recording doesn’t have any sleeve notes as such and provides no information on the tune. But a bit of research shows it is listed as "Fair and Forty" in O’Neill’s.
