Hi all,
I'm trying to find out which Airs were originally used
with the songs performed in the play of Brendan Behan.
The following List is taken from the Dubliners forum at
http://www.rareauldtimes.com/
'Comment' says what I found out about the Air.
Since I don't have the opportunity to use the
British Library Sound Archive in London where a record
of the 1972 performance is stocked I would be
very grateful for any further help or hints.
