Second polka played in Seamus Creagh album ‘Came The Dawn’, after ‘Connie In The Pool’.
Composed by Seamus Creagh.
Booklet : ‘The second one I wrote one night while thinking of the place I used to live in Ballyvourney, West Cork’.

The Gortnatubrid, X:4

From the playing of Tickle Harbour.

Lovely arrangement, Seamus was also a fan.

The group also throws in some ornament or runs around that beginning f-note of the B Part from time to time through the track.
