T:Lough Isle Castle
N:Paddy O'Brien and James Kelly recorded this.  James Byrne plays a four-part
N:version.  A distinct tune from, but obviously related to, "Sean Sa Cheo."
Z:Transcribed by Larry Sanger from a recording of John and Mickey Doherty,
Z:the only duet they ever played on record.  The first two times through;
Z:fairly close transcription.
