Notes: This is a beginner's arrangement like one would find in my most recent tune collection, Mel Bay's Easy Irish & Celtic Melodies for 5-String Banjo: Best-Loved Airs and Session Tunes. Here is a bare bones arrangement of the famous Irish air and lament about an 1828 boating accident near Galway town, based on Dolly MacMahon's sean-nos version in A Dorian. It can also be played in 3/4 and in 6/8, as a jig, known as 'The Sheep in the Boat' (Junior Crehan). Compare this arrangement with the highly ornamented version of 'Anach Cuain' (Air/Lament), for advanced players.
