FAILLTE NA MEISG (Salute to Drunkenness). Scottish, Air or Pibroch (3/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). Editor G.F. Graham notes: "This tune is ancient--it has been lying in manuscript in a family--so long indeed that tho' it was composed immediately before they go it, I would call it a tolerable age. I procured it and give it to the world, with the addition of a plain bass."
