Ullulu Mo Mháilín

Story

Played here as a polka, this melody is a macaronic song, with Irish and English words. It is the one and only tune that fiddle player Matt Cranitch and I recorded for this collection. It came very naturally to us, since it is a famous song in our native province of Munster. The tune also appears in P.W. Joyce's collection Ancient Irish Music.
