It is thought that this first tune was used as an introductory piece to playing of chanter music. Published many years ago in the Bunting Collection and found also in the repertoire of West Clare uilleann piper Willie Clancy, it was originally obtained from E. Shannon Esq. in 1839. We play it here in slow march time. We learned the polka that follows from the accordion playing of Jack O Laoinshig, Ballyvourney, Co. Cork. It is related to the Scots/Gaelic song “Dualamann na Binne Bui” which describes a back and forth conversation between two seashore plants.
