Anyone know the name of this polka (if it has one)?

Hi Ian,

This is the first of a set of three polkas that we learned from Maurice O'Keeffe of Kiskeam; he didn't have a name for it, so neither do we, alas.

Paul.

Hi Paul,

What were the other two?   And what order did you play them?

Thanks

Ian

Your tune is the first. The second one is also untitled; the third one Maurice calls "The Bloody Drunken Peeler", and in Scotland it's known as "Rob Roy's March" or "MacGregor's March". I don't have recordings handy, so I hope you're okay with ABCs :

Thanks Paul!  ABC's are fine.
