Na Ceannabháin Bhána (slip jig)

Here's a slip jig which is really the tune of a song.  I think I have a CD somewhere including a recording of Séamus Ennis singing the song but it has been hidden somewhere more obscure than the side of the sofa by a young child.

I've had to rely on memory therefore for the way the tune goes.

The title means something like "The fair haired Canavans".

    This site seems to be as good as any for searching for sheet music:

    Sadhbh Ní Bhruinnealla is a song. I found a clip of Liam Ó Maonlaí singing it and then playing a jig after it. The jig he plays is called ‘Tiocfaidh tú abhaile liom?’ (You will come home with me?). There’s a version of it here: I think I may have it somewhere on this site too.
