Matthew Edwards Same tunes (82* d) RE: Same tunes 11 Jul 14


The air "Eochaill", Youghal Harbour, turns up in many different songs, most famously perhaps in P J McCall's Boulavogue.

Other songs using the same tune that I can think of are:-
Muldoon, the Solid Man
Sweet Omagh Town
The Galway Shawl
The Ould Triangle
Moreton Bay
Edward on Lough Erne's Shore

The odd thing is that I've been to some sessions where two, or even more, of the above songs have been sung without the singers or listeners even realising that the tune was being repeated!

Matthew
