DRIMOLEAGUE FAIR (Aonac Druim-Da-Leac). AKA and see "Danny Boy," "Derry Air," "Emer's Farewell to Cucullain," "Londonderry Air." Irish, Air (4/4 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Drimoleague is a town in south County Cork, at the opposite end of the country from Derry (as so perhaps a tongue-in-cheek title for "Derry Air"?).
