This song was really an interpretation of a legend about Fair Una told by the great Irish folksinger Joe Heaney. Una Bhan was a great beauty born to the MacDiarmada clan who were the chieftains of Mayo. Its a long song nearly 12 minutes. But I was given this tuning (DADFsharp GD) by one of my internet buddies and the song just leapt out at me. I do hope you like - particularly over there in Ireland and one of your great folksingers has a shot at it. You can of course download it for free.

It's lovely - and how very different from your other Una song! I hope Una Walsh has heard this too!
