Men of Ulster, The

Story

Seán Maguire recorded this tune and gave it the above title. It may be found in Ryan's Mammoth Collection in the key of G-major under the name 'Norfolk'. The beginning of the tune always brings to mind the hornpipe 'The Wily Bachelor'. Laurel Martin plays it in her own distinctive style on the fiddle. Thanks, friend. As our mutual friend Peter Barnes once said of you, 'You're the hornpipe queen!'
