Mulcahy Family

I got the tune from the last CD of the Mulcahy Family from co. Limerick, "Reelin’ in Tradition".

This is, of course, a simplified version… I hope you like it.


This is a version of the Galway Belle I’d say.

Similar to, or a variant of, a tune called Enlist For A Sailor which crops up in English Morris.
