OLD COMRADES. AKA and see "Anton A'Bhearnais," "Kiss the Maid Behind the Bier," "My Love in the Morning," "This is My Love do You Like Her?" Irish, March. The tune is a variant of "Sweet Biddy Daly," played as part of the Dingle Wren tradition by fife and drum band. The tune was transcribed by Steve MacDonogh in his book Green and Gold (1983), who used the 1982 Wren event as an opportunity to explore historic and folklore background of the tradition.
