That's possible. They play it on one of their CDs and on You Tube. It's a ripper! :thumbsup:

It does look as if it's one they wrote. That would explain why it's not notated anywhere. I have no time over the next few days, or I would notate it for you. Remind me towards the end of next week if you want me to have a look at this. (Assuming no-one else has stepped forward in the meantime.)

Here you go:

I find the first part very similar to the first part of "The Dunmore Lasses", and the second part to the second part of "Paddy Ryan's Dream".
If you want to play it on the pipes, you will have to transpose it down to E minor.

In Ireland, a boiling fowl is just about the cheapest meat you can buy at the butcher. They're knackered old laying hens I suppose; so tough that boiling for soup or stock is about all they're good for - though in my (cheap) youth, I would roast them in the oven.

Back in the precambrian age (the very late 1950's)
as a very young child, I'd help my grandmother
feed the hens and collect the eggs never making
the connection that the chicken soup was from
old henny-penny. I have a feeling that I've eaten
a rooster or two along the way as well. So yep in
my part of the world they're known as stewing hens.

My standard response to anyone who asks my age is "Pleistocene".
