Tunes: The Galtee Hunt

This is my favorite hornpipe. I first heard it on Kells' excellent CD "SuR;" the liner notes describe it as a "very well-known hornpipe," but nobody in the Columbus, Ohio area seems to have heard of it. So I've made it my mission in life (well, in ITM anyway) to promote the tune.

Clannad have also recorded this tune; it's on Dulaman and some of their compilations. I like Kells' recording most, but Clannad's version is also good.
