SIT AROUND THE CHEERFUL HEARTH (Suide timcioll an teallad aoibin). AKA and see "Come draw we round a cheerful ring," "Irish Dump (An)," "Since sounding drums." Irish, Air (4/4 time). D Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Fr. John Quinn links O'Neill's "Sit around the cheerful hearth" with "Come draw we round a cheerful ring," which he suspects is probably "borrowed" from one of the George Thompson collections. Also linked by Fr. Quinn are "Irish Dump (An)" and "Since sounding drums."
