    This is the third and last Irish song airs I have recorded today -- another old favourite, since hearing the incredible solo recording by Paul Brady on his 1976 duo album with Andy Irvine, the best track on one of the all-time landmark albums of Irish traditional music. For those who don't know the Brady version, you should check out this 1977 live TV performance: Link

    I found a nice transcription, using very similar phrasing to Paul Brady's, here: PDF

    My version has a tenor guitar backing track, with the first verse played on tenor guitar and the mandolin joining in on the second and third verse.

    I knew I had a recording of this somewhere... this is from my Garage period about two years ago...

    This is one of my all time favorite tunes from Planxty. Eddie, I like your nice droney version
    The Paul Brady guitar version is quite different and very beautiful. I tried to master it a couple years ago and did alright, but never quite did it justice.
