At the end of the recording of this tune below, John Kelly Senior states that it is an air to a song which the last line is “once more o’er I go, slán beo, to mo mhuirnín bán.”
The song we believe to be “The Gander” which was a song sung by Willie Clancy, which is on his “Willie Clancy – The Minstrel from Clare” album from 1967.
