Hi Alison

I'd be interested to see what was said in the other thread about the Siege of Ennis because as far as I am aware this is just a set dance and not a specific set of tunes, unliked the "3 tunes"

That aside.. a couple of good ones are Maggie in the Woods and the Ratling Bog.. nice "easy ones"...

The sets we tend to do have tunes we don't know the names of, apart from Leather Away with the Wattle (aka Lisdoonvarna) and The Barren Rocks of Aden..... The Gillane plus one we do in G..(LOL)...

Dennis O'Brien's is a good one, in some sources this is lumped togther with the tune that feature din Titanic (known in our local as da da diddly da da), then Bonnet Trimmed in Blue and Captain Bing/Byng...

And of course one shouldn't forget the Kerry Polkas..
