Notes: I heard this performed by the Dubliners once, who disregarded the repeats and ran straight through the piece, then repeated it again. First time through was strictly strings (banjo, guitar, violin) then the second time through they added harmony with whistles and what sounded like hammer dulcimer. It is a very fun piece to play due to the rhythm and off-beat syncopation thrown in throughout.
