I'm learning a new tune everyday. This is a great Irish hornpipe that's been recorded by quite a few folks, including Liz Carroll, Martin Hayes, the Kane sisters, and more. It's quite long - 5 parts. So it takes 5 minutes just to play through the tune twice. But it's lovely.

I agree with Mats. Learned it from Molloy, O'Flynn and Keane from the "Fire aflame" album, so far the best version i've heard.

A right bastard to play on whistle and unkeyed flute though, with Eb and Fnat's.. : )

One of my favourite hornpipes on banjo, nice fiddle-playing, Mats

Katie, five minutes isn't so bad, it takes the drunken sailor 15 minutes to play it!
