Welcome to Limerick

Saturday, 21 December, 2013

Given that we’ll be bound for Limerick later this morning, there can be no better way to start the day than with a sprightly slip jig from the Irish piping tradition in the form of O’Farrell’s Welcome to Limerick. The tune was published around 1800 in “O’Farrell’s Collection of NATIONAL IRISH MUSIC for the UNION PIPES, Comprising a Variety of the Most Favorite Slow & Sprightly TUNES, SET in proper STILE & TASTE with Variations.” Here, with variations, it’s interpreted by the tasteful Australian guitarist Steve Cooney.
