      Looking through the tune list I noticed there are some tunes that don't appear in the original book, O'Neill's ' The Dance Music of Ireland ' '1001 Gems ' what's that all about then ?

      There are perhaps close to 1800 actual tunes from the O'Neills collection so not just taken from the original 1001. As the title says tunes are from the O'Neills collection of Irish Music

      Cheers

      The title of the book says from O'Neills Music of Ireland, it doesn't state the tunes are from the original book, I don't see the issue
