Notes: 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. This is a highly ornamented setting for advanced players, similar to the arrangements one can find in my first tune collection, Mel Bay's Complete Book of Irish & Celtic 5-String Banjo. This tune can also be played in 3/4 and in 6/8, as a jig, known as 'The Sheep in the Boat' (Junior Crehan).
