Subject: RE: Tune Req: O'Reilly of County Cavan
There is a version of this on the Traditional Songs and Singers cassette sung by a Tomás Ó Coisdealbha. In this case he hails from County Kerry. The melody is not CARRICKFERGUS or ANAC CHUAN on his recording. Although it sounds familiar to me, I can't place it. The editor of the book with the tape says its his own version of AN BUNNÁN BUÍ, although I've never heard it sung to that air. I could make a midi of it and send it off if anyone is interested.
