“The Mourne Shore” / “An Traigh Mughdhorna” / “Down By the Sally Gardens” ~ in 3/4

This is trying to make amends for not taking folks to "The Big Whistle Weekend" this weekend in Bury. Sorry gang, maybe next year. This is especially for Sarah, though she’s more familiar with this one in 4/4, which you’ll find here:

I have suspicions I first learned this as a waltz in the land of the North, Ulster… Whether 4/4 or 3/4, it is a lovely air, including as a waltz to dance to and shmaltz up… 8-)

Down By the Sally Gardens

This sounds just like the song Down By the Sally Gardens.
