FOLLOW ME DOWN TO GALWAY. Irish, Reel. A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. The title comes from flute player Mike Rafferty, who had the tune from his father. He had no name for it, so gave it the title himself, and paired it with "Follow Me Down to Carlow."

Source for notated version: Barrel Rafferty, via his son, New Jersey flute player Mike Rafferty, born in Ballinakill, Co. Galway, in 1926 [Harker].
