FAREWELL TO BALLINAHULLA. AKA and see "Julia McMahon." Irish, Jig. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. O'Neill prints the tune as "Julia McMahon." Ballinahulla is the birthplace of Kerry accordion player Denis Doody, and (according to Paul de Grae) is "just on the Kerry side of the border near Ballydesmond - to be precise, 'three fields from the Blackwater river', the river being the boundary between Kerry and Cork at that point. In other words, in the heart of Sliabh Luachra."
