The Old Walls of Liscarroll / The Yellow Wattle / Winnie Hayes'

from Homunculus Mellitus by Ben Paley



I had the first two of these jigs from Roger Leach and the last from Mandy Murray. She plays it in A and that’s how I learnt it, but I put it into D here because I like how it goes in the set. It seems a bleak ending to me, like the beach at the end of Wells’ The Time Machine, but perhaps you’ll hear something different. I can’t overstate the extent to which Roger and Mandy have nurtured my understanding of Irish music.
