Buachaill on Eirne

This set is part of the following collections:

This is the air to an Irish song about a young man from from Lough Erne whose love of alcohol and women robs him of any desire to work or even keep a house. The same tune was used in the 1960s by Scottish writer W Gordon Smith for his popular song Come By the Hills.
