The Bank of Ireland


Here's a very popular reel. I think someone asked me to record this; sorry it took so long.

I'm not sure about naming good things like tunes after banks is totally appropriate. The tired old utterance "at least Dick Turpin wore a mask" comes to mind.

There's another tune called "The Bank of Turf" which is I suppose, referring to another Bank of Ireland, i.e. a bank made of Ireland. I'll maybe record it if and when I remember how it goes.

There's another one called "The Banks". It's not really a flute tune but I sometimes try to fool it into thinking it is. I'll have a stab at it now.

    That looks like a good list of tunes. I’ll do my best to record some of them over the next few days.
