CHARLIE IS WELCOME HOME. Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A variant of "Delahunty's Hornpipe." The melody appears in Church of Ireland cleric James Goodman's mid-19th century manuscripts. Goodman (1828-1896) was an uilleann piper, and an Irish speaker who collected locally in County Cork and elsewhere in Munster. He also obtained tunes from manuscript and printed collections.
