GUEST,Annraoi Tune Req: The 'Other' 'Parting Glass' (29) RE: Tune Req: The 'Other' 'Parting Glass' 15 Oct 00

It is also known as "Sweet Cootehill Town." from the Co. Cavan town. The influx of Scots Planters here in the C17 might go some way to explaining its presence here. I also have the feeling that there is a poem by one of the Rhyming Weavers who wrought in Counties Down and Antrim in the C18 - C19 which goes to the same air. I checked up the site given by Jeri and only got the faintest echo of the "Parting Glass" popularised by the Clancys.
