And if you want reels and hornpipes check out the web-wide ABC index at:

http://www.gre.ac.uk/~c.walshaw/abc/index/wwabc.html

This lists all available ABC format tunes, 1000's of reels and lots of hornpipes (and jigs, double jigs, barn dances, set dances, polkas, marches etc)

Sla/n

Benjamin

Do a search for Richards tune book, (http://leeds.ac.uk/music/Info/RRTunebk/tunename.html)

You should find more than enough thunes to keep you busy for years.

In a Dubliners Album jacket, or possibly a song book I can't find right now was a note about how Peggy Lettermore is adjusted for different cities. i.e.- In Dublin it's ...She is the belle of Dublin City; in Belfast, ...she is the belle of Belfast City; ...she is the belle of Tipperary...and so on. It's a children's song, like for skipping rope.
